BlackBerry corporate blog hacked by London riot sympathizers

InternAdmin Contributor

RIM’s corporate blog has been defaced with threats as part of a protest against the BlackBerry maker’s plans to hand over information on London rioters to the police.

The blog section of the BlackBerry website was defaced by hacking crew TeaMp0isoN, which proceeded to boast about the attack on Twitter. “No Blackberry you will NOT assist the police,” it said.

The defacement itself (archived by Zone-h here) contains a manifesto by the group, threatening the release of sensitive corporate directories supposedly stolen from the site if RIM carries through its promise to help the police.
