PETA Supporters Hack “Dog Wars” Phone App

Dog Wars Kane Games

It’s a phone app that has dog lovers up in arms. And now some PETA supporters have taken matters into their own hands by hijacking the game.

The dog fighting app for the Android smartphone called “Dog Wars” is a sick game where users can fight their dogs against other virtual dogs. Celebrities like Alicia Silverstone and Michael Vick came out against it.

The game was taken off the market in April, but versions of it are floating around the Internet on unauthorized sites. Now it seems some animal loving hacker has decided to hack the older version of the game and put in a Trojan to embarrass the people who play it.

No, the hack doesn’t ruin your phone or delete the game. Instead, it sends a text to all of your contacts that says, “I take pleasure in hurting small animals, just thought you should know that.”

In addition, on the hacked version where it used to read “BETA” at the top of the app, it now says “PETA.” The hacker also made it so the user’s smartphone will attempt to sign up for PETA’s text messaging service.

While PETA’s name was used, no one thinks the animal rights organization actually hacked the app. It was most likely just a supporter who had fun taunting the people who enjoy the violent game.

I got an iPad 2-32GB for $ 23.87 and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $ 38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $ 657 which only cost me $ 62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, http://x.co/Z9j7
