The official website and the Twitter account of the American celebrity William Ray Norwood Jr, also known as Ray J, have been taken over by hackers part of the UGNazi collective, the same ones who have recently breached the systems of WHMCS, MyBB and CloudFlare.
Currently, the singer/actor/songwriter has regained access to his account, but during the time in which it was controlled by the hackers, Ray J’s 1 million followers could see tweets such as:
My Skype Handle is rajyexclusive
Do you want to be in my new music video, Email me at email@example.com, Females only.
Check out my new site Rayj.com #UGNazi
UGNazi are the Gods of the internet
If you want me to follow you, tweet “#UGNazi #Joshthegod #Cosmo #Lulzsec”
As a result of this last tweet, the #Cosmo
hashtag became trended in the United States.
If Ray J regained control of his social media account, it’s a whole different story with his official website. UGNazi redirected all the site’s visitors to their own domain, ugnazi.com. They also leaked the entire contents of rayj.com, totaling a 384 megabyte archive.
So, you may be wondering why the celebrity has become a target of the controversial crew.
“We did it for the lulz and something he did in 2007 to Kim Kardahsian,” said Cosmo, one of the members of the team. “I just don't like what he did.”
At press time, visitors of rayj.com
were still being redirected to the UGNazi website.
Ray J isn’t the first superstar whose Twitter account has been overtaken by UGNazi. A few weeks ago we reported
that the same group of hackers targeted famous rapper Hopsin because his record label showed its support for the controversial Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).
