fast Companys Apple intelligence access hijacked to send an obscene push notification / Apple intelligence has disabled its channel, and the release took down its website. By RICHARD LAWLER / @rjcc Updated sep 27, 2022, 8:48 pm CDT|2 Comments / 2 New Share this story A black and white graphic showing the Apple logo Nick Barclay / The Verge Its been a little while since we had a high-profile media feast hijacking, but tonight someone sent an Apple News notification from fast company containing a racial smudge and invitation for a particular sexual act. Apple has addressed the incident on its Apple intelligence twitter account, expression that its disabled Fast Companys channel. The publication confirmed the hack. Fast Companys Apple News account was hacked on Tuesday evening. Two obscene and racist thrust notifications were sent about a minute apart. The messages are vile and are not in line with the content of fast Company. We are investigating the situation and have suspended the feed and shut down FastCompany.com until we are certain the situation has been resolved. An article posted to Fast Companys website before it disappeared included a message from postpixel, describing at length how they were able to execute the onslaught and deriding attempts to secure the outlets publishing tools. The message claims they got in thanks to a password that was shared across many accounts, including an administrator. Wow, Fast Company. despite the public defacement of your site, which boasts millions of visitors, all you did was hastily convert your database credentials, disable outside connections to the database server, and fix the articles. What an absolute disgrace of a news source, and one that I would personally invalidate due to how little they charge about user security. Message posted by fast fellowship hackers Image: FastCompany.com The hackers also pointed to a forum for trading information stolen in certificate breaches, where they shared the same details, starting with posts made two days ago. The forum stake said theyre releasing thousands of employee records, as well as potation posts from the database, but said customer information was stored in a different database that they did not make access to. Its unclear exactly how many people received the blast, but a look around social media reveals it went out widely. Vox Media staffers who dont pay for subscriptions to Fast companion say it popped up on their phones as well. Weve seen hackers take over twitter feeds, YouTube channels, press release newswires, and occasionally deface websites, but an Apple tidings alert takeover may be a first. However, as startup exec Zack Wynegar notes, spell the fast companion content was obscene and offensive, someone with that kind of access couldve gone another route to manipulate gunstock markets or crypto prices, similar to the Walmart Litecoin crypto hoax last year. Update september 27th, 9:45PM ET: Added statements and tweets from fast company and Apple News.
