The biggest hacks of 2016 – A year in hacking

In case you didn’t know, in amongst the celebrity deaths, and the unraveling of the NWO bandwagon, 2016 was also a bumper year for hackers. Some of the biggest and most audacious hacks in history took place in 2016, including the hacking of the US elections, and the Mirai botnet DDOS attack, which took down some of the biggest sites on the internet including Amazon, Facebook and Twitter.

There have been the largest hacks of personal information in history. Also in 2016. Names such as Yahoo, with billions of accounts compromised.

So here’s my little run-down.

2016 – A year in hacking.

Friend Finder Network Inc is a company that operates a wide range of 18+ services and was hacked in November of 2016 for over 400 million accounts representing 20 years of customer data.
