Twitter account of E! Online hacked, says fix is underway

Twitter account of E! Online hacked, says fix is underway

 

The official account of E! Online is the next to be attacked by hackers days after Twitter sent out an official memo asking users to beware of increasing cyber attacks.

The account which goes under the handle @eonline started posting several tweets attributing false and misleading statements about Justin Bieber. The Twitter account of E! Online has been suspended to deal with the cyber attack.

Currently circulating retweets and images from @eonline pointed to the Syrian Electronic Army as the culprit behind the attacks. The self-described troll has also claimed to be behind the break-in and takeover other high-profile accounts connected to NPR, CBS, and The Guardian. E! Online has confirmed the hacking attack through a tweet posted following the incident:

"Our account @eonline has been compromised and some incorrect information was sent out. We're working with Twitter now to fix this."

E! Online is only one of the several high profile Twitter accounts to be attacked as of late. The attacks are not limited to Twitter but to corporate account websites and emails as well. In response Twitter has sent out a warning earlier this week for stricter security measures. The social networking site may also implement a two-factor authentication method itself to make it more difficult for cyber attacks to succeed.
