Prominent Online Magazine, Variety, Hacked. Multiple Emails Spamming Subscriber Inboxes.
It’s not a happy Saturday for Variety Magazine’s online site. The prominent Hollywood mag’s subscriber list has been hacked by a group known as #OurMine. Multiple emails are being sent to the list and although they appear to be from Variety, lead to either a list of links, to the OurMine site, or to a “dead” page at Variety.
Ironically, the attack follows three-days behind Variety’s story about the breech and subsequent server outage at PMK-BNC Publishing that disabled their email accounts.
Calls to Variety are going unanswered as today is…not happy Saturday. We’ll update you with further developments as the story continues to unfold.
