Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Account Hacked by OurMine

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey’s account has been hacked for a small period of time. This is the latest cyber attack against the high profile personalities by the hacker group ‘OurMine’.

Previously, the group had hacked social media accounts of Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. The group also shared few videos and then posted a tweet that read “Hey, its OurMine, we are testing our security.” It also included a Vine which has been deleted now alongwith a link to the website of OurMine.

According to a reputd technology website, the published tweets was immediately deleted. Moreover, the messages posted from OurMine to Dorsey’s account (as of 3.25AM) came via Vine.

We attempted to access OurMine website but it redirected to some other page which had several tweets. We immediately closed it think it’s unsafe.¬†Earlier, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg was hacked not only on Twitter but also on Pinterest.

Interestingly, Twitter hasn’t blocked the official Twitter handle of OurMine despite hacking its own CEO’s official Twitter handle.
