A hacker group took over Mark Zuckerberg's Twitter account over the weekend. He was though not the only victim.
It is extremely embarrassing to get hacked as the Founder & CEO of Facebook. Zuckerberg can though find comfort that he is not the only victim. Still, he should know better as a techie. His password for Twitter was "dadada."
Zuckerberg's Twitter and Pinterest accounts are though not really used by Zuckerberg in contrast to Keith Richards, Tenacious D, Tame Impala and Kylie Jenner's Twitter account. Turned out these celebrity Twitter accounts got compromised too. The hackers posted fake Tweets on these accounts that have since been removed.
Kylie Jenner made on Snapchat the perfect response to getting hacked: "So my Twitter was hacked, and I don't really care. I'm just letting 'em have fun with it." Watch below.
Katy Perry's Twitter account with close to 90 million followers was hacked end of last month. That hack was apparently the beginning of this wave.
The sudden flood of social media account breaches is likely connected to the stolen LinkedIn account details that surfaced recently. The hacker group OurMine Team claimed to be behind the Zuckerberg hack. Twitter has suspended the group's account. They just opened a new account. One Tweet says: "Our Old Twitter (@_OurMine_) is suspended because we are just trying to secure Mark Zuckerberg Accounts !"
We human just lazy and use the same password everywhere on the Internet. I recommend using a password manager until the web grows up and gives us a single sign on with our iris.
Earlier today Keith’s Twitter account was hacked along with other verified accounts. The hateful tweets that were posted have been removed.— Keith Richards (@officialKeef) June 5, 2016
