The official Twitter account of Facebook’s VP Adam Mosseri was hacked by OurMine hackers!
OurMine hacking group has struck again, this time, the official Twitter account of Adam Mosseri, Vice President, Product Management for News Feed at Facebook was their target.
Mosseri, who manages News Feed and Interfaces PM teams at Facebook had his Twitter account hacked on 14th August where OurMine hackers sent a Tweet from the account and changed his bio section with their own message.
”Hey, it’s #OurMine , don’t worry we are just testing your security, please visit our website to upgrade it , Thanks!”
OurMine is the same group who has been hacking social media accounts of high-profile tech celebrities by using old passwords from LinkedIn and MySpace data dumps. In the past couple of months, OurMine took over accounts of Pokémon Go’s creator John Hanke, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai, Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Zach Klein, co-founder of video-sharing website Vimeo.
The group is also working on establishing an IT security firm in order to assist those affected by their hacks. According to their blog post, OurMine even offered Mosseri to buy their services to keep his security up to date but the group didn’t mention if they found Mosseri’s credentials among the previously leaked MySpace and LinkedIn databases nor is there any hint if hackers took over his Quora account.
At the time of publishing this article, Mosseri’s account was restored and the tweet sent out by OurMine was deleted however at the same time it seems like Mosseri forgot to change his bio section since it’s showing the same bio uploaded by OurMine.
