It was just this morning that we reported on Lizard Squad claiming responsibility for the earlier Facebook and Instagram outage, now it seems that the hacking group has taken another Social Media behemoth – Taylor Swift. For 15 minutes, Swift’s account featured two Tweets that referred to the reptile-themed cyber attackers.

Even though it was only 15 minutes before they were deleted, both tweets handing shoutouts to two Lizard Squad accounts, received 1 -2 thousand retweets and more than 11 thousand combined favourites. It’s also worth mentioning that her 20 million follower Instagram was hacked too, with a similar plug for one of Lizard Squad’s members.

Lizard Squad keeps on making the headlines lately following their massive DDoS attacks on both PSN and Xbox Live last Christmas. Just this past weekend, they took down the website of Malaysia Airlines, leaving the message “404 – Plane Not Found” shortly before promising to dump some “loot” found on the site’s servers. Plus this morning, the group hinted at their involvement with last night’s Facebook and Instagram outage.

We can only wonder what they’ll try next.
