HBO hackade igen
The Game of Thrones hacking saga continues, but this time it’s the HBO’s and GOT’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts got compromised, rather than upcoming episodes.
As if the leak of episodes by hackers and the accidental airing of an upcoming episode of Game of Thrones by HBO itself were not enough, a notorious group of hackers took over the official Twitter and Facebook accounts for HBO as well as Game of Thrones Wednesday night.
The hacker group from Saudi Arabia, dubbed OurMine, claimed responsibility for the hack, posting a message on both HBO’s official Twitter and Facebook accounts, which read:
“Hi, OurMine are here, we are just testing your security, HBO team, please contact us to upgrade the security,” followed by a contact link for the group.
This message was followed by another one, wherein hackers asked people to make the hashtag #HBOhacked trending on Twitter, which it did.
Ourmine is the same group of hackers from Saudi Arabia that previously compromised social media accounts of major companies CEOs, including Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, and Facebook-owned virtual reality company Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe.
Den eller de som är ansvariga för säkerheten på HBO lär behöva hitta nytt jobb jävligt nu, misstänker jag.
