Lizard Squad hijacks Lenovo website, emails

2015/02/26

Securityweek - (International) Lizard Squad hackers hijacked the Lenovo Web site and email servers by using CloudFlare IP addresses to modify DNS records in Lenovo domain registrar accounts and redirect users to defacement pages, and changed mail server records to allow the group to intercept emails sent to Lenovo email addresses. The hijacking mirrored a similar attack that targeted Google Vietnam during the week of February 23.
