Dwyane Wade sues computer hackersPosted by Inside Hoops
Bill Hethcock of the Dallas Business Journal reports:
Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade claims in a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court in Sherman that somebody is hacking into his personal email and social media accounts and stealing confidential business and personal information.
The hackers, who aren’t named in the complaint, got into Wade’s Yahoo!bizWatch and Twitter accounts, according to the complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas…
The hacking happened between Jan. 2007 and June 2011, and involved modifying account settings and changing account passwords, according to the suit. The hackers reviewed years worth of confidential and private information, including documents between Wade and his attorneys, communications between Wade and his ex-wife, business associates, advisers, family and friends, the complaint states. The hackers also sent sometimes vulgar and threatening emails purporting to be from Wade and used Wade’s likeness request private documents, the complaint says.
