Earlier today, Amy Winehouse‘s website was hacked by what is, quite possibly, the most hilarious team of hackers ever: Swagger Security, or SwagSec, for short. (It’s not like I know a ton of hacker teams, though, so there could be a more hilarious team out there; who knows.)
The best part is: her website is still under the hackers’ control, as of publish time. Check it out for yourself: www.AmyWinehouse.com
(UPDATE: The hackers must’ve really done a number on Amy’s site, because Amy’s people have been forced to redirect her website’s URL to the Amy Winehouse Facebook page)
Amy Winehouse Website Hacked
In case you missed it, here’s a screenshot of the hilarious shenanigans:
(Warning for any sensitive souls: I am much too lazy to censor this, there are just WAY too many words that would need to be blurred out. Plus, it’s just funnier this way.)

In their crazy, hard-to-read, mess of text, the hackers write:
“THE GOALS OF SWAGSEC ARE 2 TAKE BACK THE INTERNET FROM THE WHITE DEVIL.DEATH 2 THE WHITE DEVIL.”
I would rip on the text’s lack of readability…but I guess that’s why these guys went into hacking, and not web design.
BUT WAIT! The fun doesn’t stop there: Amy Winehouse’s hacker is on Twitter! Username: @SwagSec (I know you wanna follow!)
Let’s get to know @SwagSec, shall we? According to their Twitter Profile:
“WE ARE HERE TO TAKE BACK THE INTERNET .–.wHoOp.–. FROM THE WHITE DEVIL. WE ARE A TEAM OF HOMOSEXUAL NEGROS AND WE ARE PROUD OF IT. SWAGGGG”
And, because everyone loves screenshots:
Please notice that @SwagSec is following 12 people, two-thirds of which are accounts associated with KFC. Nice.
UPDATE: KFC has blocked @SwagSec on Twitter. What idiots. They’re really missing out on a great opportunity for publicity. SMH. SMFH.
Here’s what @SwagSec has to say about being blocked by KFC’s Twitter account:
|Yeah, I censored. And yeah, I retweeted.|
Colonel Sanders obviously just made @SwagSec’s s#!t list. Stay tuned for: “KFC’s Website Gets Hacked… Big Time”
