Popular Indian singer Adnan Sami’s Twitter account has been hacked by a Turkish Group Ayyildiz Tim who previously set up PM Imran Khan’s photo as the profile picture of Amitabh Bachchan’s Twitter account. The group intends to go after everyone publically showing anti-Pakistan sentiments and this is the second example they have set so far.
The singer’s desperate attempt to make a new account didn’t go well either as it was also hacked. The hacker group has claimed to have direct messages of the singer and other important data. This is the condition of his Twitter account right now:
As you can see, the profile picture is of PM Imran Khan and the background is of the group that hacked the Twitter account. The hacker group posted the following tweet which is no longer available on the profile:
The account at the time of writing is still in the hacker group’s hands and it seems like they are trying to flood his profile with as many tweets as possible if you look closely at the screenshot above. However, if you click on the 100 new Tweets button, the profile doesn’t get updated so it seems like Twitter’s spam bots are working as they should be.
This is the not first time a hacker group has resorted to taking down celebrity accounts to prove their point. OurMine has been extremely popular for hacking accounts of Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Wikipedia CEO Jimmy Wales and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to prove that modern-day social networking platforms lack the security needed to protect accounts.
Which celebrity’s Twitter account do you think will be hacked next?
