Flipping hackers on the attack July 17, 2008Posted by cyberpatrol in 4chan.org, Anonymous, christopher poole, google, Hacking.
Google has had its Hot Trends system hacked for the second time in seven days.
Last week a swastika appeared on Google Trends as a top queried term. It was removed and a spokesGoogle claimed that a link on a popular Internet bulletin board, 4Chan, was to blame.
Last night the most queried term on Google Trends was no longer a Swastika, it was the statement “ǝlƃooƃ noʎ ʞɔnɟ”.
So far no one has worked out how it could happen. Google claims the Hot Trends list is automatically generated by machines and algorithms that detect hot or breaking queries.
But flipped text seems to imply that there is a hacker involved rather than just people playing the system.
