Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s Account Hacked

In a recent news Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s twitter account got hacked. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s account was today briefly hacked, the latest cyber attack against the high-profile personalities by hacker group ‘OurMine’.

“After the hackers posted a few benign video clips, a tweet went up at 2:50 AM ET saying ‘Hey, its OurMine,we are testing your security’ and linking to their website. That tweet was quickly deleted,” technology website engadget.com reported.

“All of the OurMine messages posted to Dorsey’s account (which, as of 3:25 am or so appears to have been scrubbed of the hacker’s tweets), came through from Vine,” it said. It is possible Dorsey had an old/shared password on his Vine account or somehow connected it to another service that was compromised, which could have given OurMine access, the report said.

The group, which previously hijacked social media accounts of Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Mark Zuckerberg, shared a few videos and then sent a tweet that read, “Hey, its OurMine, we are testing our security.”
