A group that calls itself the ZCompanyHackingCrew (ZHC) has successfully managed to hack multiple accounts belonging to Israeli Vice Prime Minister Silvan Shalom. Not only have they defaced his Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, as well as his blog on Blogger, but they also claim to have access to his Gmail account and are threatening to leak his emails tomorrow.

If we’re not careful as a society, we may end up with a closed Internet, regulated by big corporations with only their deep pockets in mind. It was a close call with SOPA, which as a unified front we were able to stop. The wheels never stopped turning after SOPA, as we have encountered ACTA and CISPA. Now it seems the ITU is trying to get in on the Internet, and bring regulations that will harm the openness of the world wide web.
