Leo gets pwned

Leo Laporte got pwned today by one of the heroes of the movement as he was attempting to describe a new service that allows tweeting from a web browser’s menu bar. He has since deleted the “test tweets” from the Futz.me service. But not before a TotalDrama spy was able to take a screengrab:

This is real.
This is real.

Later, #Soup got told off by Futz.me after Leo tweeted his displeasure with the service:

And now, here’s the video chronicling the entire affair that was made by an anonymous national treasure and sent to TotalDrama under cover of darkness (click on the center of the box to play):

No, Mathew. Leo was not hacked. He put it out publicly that he wanted people to test Futz. So somebody did.

And finally, here’s the reaction from the shut-ins in the TWiT chatroom (please use the scroll bar on the right of the text to see more):

<Chickenhead21> His mom better make him a bowl of soup
<downclimb> That's okay, ScooterX. Even if it does break my streak of 8ish years in the TWiT IRC without a kick or ban.
<arjavrawal> bleak: They're just bitter and I don't blame them
<Web4001> I got a bad case of the iphone blues
<bleak> Web5910: the likelihood of someone overseeing a username that is written in plaintext is MASSIVE. its a bad idea
<arjavrawal> Bitter with the mods for kicking them
<bleak> arjavrawal: whatever. I like the mods, even though I have the prize for most bans in a year
<bleak> they need to grow a pair

  1. I guess I missed something. Why was he promoting this service? How long had he been using it before he decided to show it off? Had he even stopped to think for 2 minutes that it couldn’t possibly be secure? “Look, you just type a URL and it tweets!”. No thought about encryption, passwords, who built the service (they now have access to his account(s)), what they do with personal information, etc, etc.

    They *shouldn’t* cut the futz stuff out of the show… he should’ve immediately cut to talking about the difference between trusting all your priviate information to a company like, say Google, and a company about which you know absolutely nothing. There’s a great point to be made here.

    Or, just cut it out because you don’t want to give them “publicity” and you were embarrassed and let somebody else discover the problem on their own.

  2. I was blocked by the fat guy and This week in Smelly of Jeff puts me to sleep. So i missed all this. But remember you talking about the guy that showed on air his live sex talk with his CEO. Then gets mad when people reported about it.

    This is also the guy that loves everything out of the box no matter what and a week later hates it.

  3. I thought I was watching The Three Stooges.

    I wonder if Jarvis ever figured any of this out. He seemed clueless.

    Perfect example of Leo promoting something he doesn’t understand then getting burned.

    1. Scooter panicked. The guy that go tossed probably lets his wife beat him while licking her feet.

  4. Like I said before (my comment was deleted by the hypocrite who always whines about getting booted from the chat room), this isn’t a hack.

    Leo lives and experiments in public because he has courage.

    HelloWorld hides behind anonymity and pretends to hack when in fact he’s just abusing Leo’s openness because he’s a pussy, a lier and a troll.

    1. You are truly a dense mother fucker. HelloWorld said explicitly in his post that it was *not* a hack. He didn’t try to say he hacked anything.

      Eat a dick.

  5. The lovely and talented Sarah Lane was on TNT… I mean DTNS yesterday with Tom. Iyaz even stopped by for a bit! Guess this confirms suspicions about Leo and Lisa banning her from appearing on Tom’s shows…

      1. Or it might have been that Sarah prepping for her daily show at 4 pm and driving up to Petaluma didn’t really mix well with recording another show in the 1:30 to 3 pm time slot.

        Also, it’s not really TNT until Sarah’s back home and in her PJs. 😉

  6. TD I am truly sorry for the nasty things I have said. I am going through a bad time in my life. My wife Molly and I are trying to work through issues with my own gender identity .

    I have low self esteem problems and Molly telling me I am a worthless, broke dick bitch does not help. I am sorry for the nasty witless posts I have made. Please forgive me. This is your site I should not have intruded.

    I am going to get my nails done and to get a cute spring outfit.
    No hard feelings muh bitches.

  7. To the fake Jason, go bite me. 😛

    I didn’t have the video on during the live stream Wednesday, but I was wondering why Leo cut the mic. Now I know.
    That’s one thing that bugs me about Leo, he will get suckered into things and then get upset when it doesn’t go well. He’ll never learn.

    1. How dare you pretend to me! You are a horrid horrid person! I bet you are a troll on Twitter as well! Pretending to be me! I am so upset I will have to powder my nose my husband Jason did something terrible in the past few days as well, I had to increase his medication to compensate and I think I got his pills mixed up with mine, I only hope that birth control pills in a man doesn’t castrate them or something meanwhile I took his ritalin to keep him calm and under control and I am bouncing off the walls like a crazy bitch on her period!
