Anonymous hacks Palin’s Yahoo account

By on

Members of the anti-Scientology group Anonymous have taken turned their attention to Sarah Palin, the vice presidential candidate for the Republicans and the governor of Alaska, by hacking into her Yahoo email account. According to The Register, “activists loosely affiliated” with the group gained access to the account at around midnight.

It is unknown how the group managed to get into her account, but screenshots have been posted to Wikileaks with the address “gov.palin@yahoo.com”. One screenshot shows an email from Amy McCorkell, a member for Palin’s Advisory Board on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. Other screenshots include the inbox and contact lists.

Thanks for coming onboard!
We're excited to have you.
