Superstar Lady Gaga might be singing the blues after her website was hacked.  The group SwagSec allegedly broke into the singer’s website late last month and stole thousands of personal details including e-mail addresses.  Financial details were not stolen according to Universal Music. 

Toshiba announced that it was one of the latest victims of hackers also.  The company says a server belonging to its U.S. unit was a target, with hackers getting the information of more than 75 hundred customers.  The stolen information was comprised of a small number of email addresses and other data but information like credit card and social security numbers was not stolen. 

The hacking group Anonymous says it doesn’t need Google+ and has decided to start its own social networking site.  Google+ dumped the group from its site for violating its community standards.  Anonymous’ site is under construction now.  So far, it consists of an explanation of how it came to be and a promise to be up and running soon.
