Fans of TV who love Twitter but hate spoilers, meet Jennie Lamere.

The 17-year-old entered the TVnext Hack event in Boston and not only won her category, "Best Use of Sync-To-Broadcast," but also won Best In Show.

Her creation? Twivo, a TV spoiler blocker made for Twitter.

An extension of Google Chrome, Twivo lets users type in key words they would like to block and for how long. Take the example of Game of Thrones spoilers.

If you missed the episode but have it on DVR and still want to be on Twitter, enter keyword "Game of Thrones" and you won't see any tweets about it!

So for The Bachelorette spoilers, you'd have to start like two months before the premiere, since Reality Steve starts posting them then. Just FYI.

Two hacking groups are taking responsibility/credit for the cyber attacks Tuesday against the White House and AP, and both are likely telling the truth.

Obama Outside White House

The Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) claims it "owned" the AP after hacking into its Twitter and reporting that President Obama was injured in an explosion.

SEA has hacked Twitter for months to spread political messages, but it looks like they had some help in this case as part of a coordinated hacker effort.

Exposed, the group behind most of the major L.A. celebrity swatting incidents in recent weeks, says it was behind the White House swatting as well.

A hacker group issued an ultimatum to the U.S. government today, demanding America declare war on North Korea or the White House would explode.

The hacker group that took responsibility for exposing the private financial information of Michelle Obama and many other celebrities is behind this, too.

The WH

The hackers have also swatted Diddy, Ryan Seacrest, Justin Timberlake, Paris Hilton, Chris Brown, Tom Cruise, Rihanna and others in recent weeks.

Contacted authorities through 911, the group threatened to detonate eight bombs around the White House perimeter if President Obama did not comply.

He had 24 hours to declare war, they claimed.

A false tweet from the Associated Press indicated that the White House was the victim of two explosions this morning and that the President was injured.

This is not the case at all. President Barack Obama is fine.

Moreover, the AP confirms its Twitter feed was hacked.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney held a press conference shortly following the Twitter post, saying without a doubt that "the President is fine."

With North Korea threatening war with the U.S. this week, hackers reportedly affiliated with Anonymous broke into the rogue state's official Twitter account.

The country's Twitter and Flickr pages stopped sending out typical content from the Pyongyang regime, such as photos of Kim Jong Un and military leaders.

Kim Jong Un Hacked

Instead, a picture posted on the North's Flickr site shows Kim Jong Un's face with a pig-like snout and a drawing of Mickey Mouse on his chest.

Underneath, the text reads: "Threatening world peace with ICBMs and Nuclear weapons / Wasting money while his people starve to death."

Pretty much sums up Dennis Rodman's dictator BFF.

The infamous celebrity hackers have claimed a new victim: Octomom.

Guess they're defining "celebrity" pretty loosely as time goes on.

Octomom in Red

The celebrity hackers, who struck this week and last, may be just targeting any individual who is remotely infamous or potentially hateable at this point.

It's certainly not about using the info to steal money in broke Octo's case. Nadya Suleman probably has like no credit. Talk about a bad ID theft target!

The person(s) responsible for hacking celebrities' finances apparently like to think of themselves as heroes as well as outlaws ... a la Dexter Morgan.

At the top of the hackers' website is the line, "If you believe that God makes miracles, you have to wonder if Satan has a few up his sleeve."

This is one of the most memorable Dexter quotes:

The hackers' love for the Showtime series/protagonist apparently runs as deep as their dislike for Michelle Obama, the most famous of their celeb targets.

The website's source code also apparently includes a link to a hidden YouTube video that doesn't appear anywhere on the actual page.

The video is the Dexter end credits theme music.

Michelle Obama has been hacked in an alarming breach of security by unknown cyber-assailants who have disclosed the First Lady's financial information.

The hackers also obtained and published financial info on Beyonce, Jay-Z, Britney Spears, Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian and other celebrities.

Unhappy FLOTUS

A website run by the hackers has posted Michelle's credit report, social security number, phone numbers, banking and mortgage info and credit card details.

The website also hacked V.P. Joe Biden's history, but the info they were able to obtain was extremely limited in his case (unlike Michelle Obama's).

The motives of the hacker(s) could be more than sporting.

Remember Donkey Kong? The classic video game in which Mario leaps over barrels, climbs scaffolding and traverses elevators to save the Princess?

Mike Mika hacked it after a request from his daughter Ellis to switch up the gender roles. The youngster wanted to be Princess Pauline and rescue Mario.

The little tyke got the idea from Super Mario Bros. 2, another classic NES game and one that actually allows you to play as Princess Toadstool.

She really liked playing as a girl character, and was therefore bummed she could not also suit up to battle Donkey Kong as anyone other than Mario.

Or could she? Mike, fortunately, makes games for a living, so ...

In hilarious news, Donald Trump was hacked Thursday by some nefarious character who posted Lil Wayne lyrics to his Twitter before the account was disabled.

"These hoes think they classy, well that's the class I'm skippen," he Tweeted.

Alas, it was not actually the Donald who posted that philosophical gem.

Trump is Pumped

The message wasn't directed at any hoes in particular; it's a line from Lil Wayne's rap in the "Scream & Shout" remix (also featuring Britney).
