The Parmelee Post: Cybersecurity Firm Says Russia May Have Hacked Santa’s List
Good old Saint Nick may want to check his list for a third time this holiday season in light of recent evidence that his infamous naughty/nice database may have been compromised.
According to Williston cybersecurity firm Hack My Bits Up, a prolonged, Russia-based cyberattack may have messed with the privacy of Santa Claus’ annual behavioral records, which were digitized in 2009.
“Keeping paper records on every child in the world who observes Christianity — at least one day out of the year — was becoming increasingly cumbersome,” explained Data Elf, director of information systems at the North Pole. “So, like most 21st-century businesses, we digitized our records and transferred all that data into the cloud, assuming it was safe. Clearly, we were wrong.”
A spokesperson for Hack My Bits Up said that if it weren’t for the 2016 election, the attacks might have gone completely unnoticed.
