Hackers have certainly been busy. Yahoo recently confirmed one of the largest Internet security breaches ever, and other major sites like Linkedin and Dropbox have also suffered major hacks in recent years. Now, BuzzFeed has joined the ranks of聽websites compromised by hackers.

Computer crime concept

Earlier today, hackers altered聽several聽stories on the website, says聽The Drum. The hacker group OurMine claimed it was聽in聽retaliation for a story posted by BuzzFeed reporter Joseph Bernstein that聽allegedly doxed a聽member of their group. The聽hacker group also聽changed the titles of several BuzzFeed posts to read 鈥淗acked by OurMine Team.鈥

The hackers left another note 鈥 which was more of a threat, really 鈥斅爏aying they had聽the site鈥檚 鈥渄atabase.鈥 鈥淣ext time [the database] will be public. Don鈥檛 f鈥斅爓ith OurMine again.鈥

The group has claimed聽several high-profile hacks over the past 12 months.聽Victims included Mark Zuckerberg, Google鈥檚 Sundar Pichai, and Twitter鈥檚 former head, Dick Costolo. They鈥檝e also targeted celebrities. Some Twitter users said that OurMine had written聽over dozens聽of BuzzFeed posts, but the site appears to have dealt with the cyber attack already.

It鈥檚 one thing to be mad at a news group for supposedly reporting wrong information, but we think that there are better ways that OurMine could have handled it.

What do you think聽OurMine could have done instead? Tweet us @BritandCo!
