One of the EHN's reader, Jonathan Capistrano who contacted LR about the status of peoples funds was told that they will not be closing down but are taking a break and that LR will be back "new and better" and finally said that funds will stay there , with no reduction or increase in value.

ITV News London Twitter account hacked by Syrian Electronic Army
I said few days ago the two-step authentication feature will stop Syrian Electronic Army from hacking the Twitter accounts. Yesterday Twitter enabled the Two-step authentication security feature that prompts you to enter the temporarily generated password sent to your phone. You can login to the account only if you provide the correct password.
It appears the ITV News London fails to enable this feature in their account that allowed the SEA team to get in. Today, Syrian electronic army hijacked the @itvlondon.
As usual, they posted some fake tweets from the hijacked account.
"Cameron cuts education funding, triples aid to Syrian rebels: "Israel's long security is the UK's first priority". itv.co/36k2PO" one of the fake tweet posted by the SEA reads.
"Just kidding. The syrian Electronic Army was here. #SEA" another tweet reads.
The account seems to be recovered by the admin at the time of writing but the Syrian Electronic army and EHN's reader provided the screenshots for the hack.

Pakistan Intelligence job board website defaced by Anonymous
A security flaw in pakistanintelligence.com, a pakistani job portal gave an opportunity to Anonymous hacker to gain access to their server.
Anonymous left the about us page "www.pakistanintelligence.com/text_pages.php?id=1
" defaced with the text "hacked by anonymous "
"You b33n h4ck3d by #F**kYouSec. OHai all....time to look for a job using some other service...we haz ALL UR infoz...Y?... cuz i can...and U b33n sold out by poor security
" The message posted by the hacker.
The hackers also claimed to have leaked 2Gb of logs zipped into 24Mb file, uploaded to anonfiles website.
This is not the first time the site is being under the cyber attack. The same page was defaced in 2011. We are not sure whether the same vulnerability allowed him to gain the access.
Cyber War News analyzed the dump and found the leak contains personal data of individuals who registered in the portal which include name, contact info, job type and more. It also includes the login credentials of admin account.
