WHID 2009-15: Kanye West has been Hacked

Celebrities web presence hacking is topping 2009 incidents list, and rappers seem to lead. However this report in the Ampersand, like the Lil Kim story from the same week,is somewhat questionable. In both cases it seem that uncomfortable content was blamed on hacking.

West's story is somewhat ironic as he used his blog to remind users of the untruthfulness of his web presence.

When reviewing all the rappers incidents, my conclusion is that they are more susceptible to content spoofing because it is much easier for hackers to imitate their language and style.
