5 Top Most CEO'S Twitter Accounts Hacked in 2016

Many twitter  accounts and also other social media accounts were hacked this year in which many of top tech companies Ceo's and also some celebrities became victims.Most of these attacks were done by OURMINE hacking team.Some of them were listed below .


  Mark Zuckerberg                                                                                                                                                 CEO of Facebook


           

 Earlier this year a hacking group called OURMINE hacked twitter account of zuckerberg.the password was said to be leaked from LinkedIn password dump.they also compromised Pinterest and LinkedIn accounts of Zuckerberg which has same password as the twitter.the password was also posted in a tweet by the hacking group "dadada".  


Now the twitter account has been recovered and is normal.

                                                                                         

Sundar Pichai                                                                                                                                                 CEO of Google                                                                                                                
                         

There is no exception even for largest tech giant google's CEO Sundar Pichai.his quora account has been hacked and spam posts have been posted on twitter account linked with that.OURMINE hacking group claims responsibility for this attack too.

Now his Quora and twitter accounts are normal 




Jack Dorsey                                                                                                                                                CEO of Twitter

OURMIINE hacking team was even able to post from jack Dorsey's twitter account and then twitter team   removed posts immediately.so its clear message that no one are an  exception when security is weak.

Jimmy Wales                                                                                                                                                Founder of Wikipedia                                                                                                                                                                      


The same hacking group also hacked the twitter account of jimmy wales and they tweeted "R.I.P jimmy wales" and "i confirm that Wikipedia is all lies our mine team is true".

Now the account was normal tweeted by jimmy wales


Tim Armstrong                                                                                                                                                 CEO of AOL

Tim Armstrong's twitter  account was also hacked by  same hacking team .they posted some spam tweets.Now his account was normal.

  • There are also few other celebrities in the list   Kat perry(singer ),  Brendan Iribe(oculus CEO),Daniel Ek(Spotify CEO) , Lana Del Ray(singer), Kylie Jenner( celebrity ), Drake(rapper )

                                                                                    
The hacking group says that these were done only to make them aware of weak security and that is the reason they didn't change  password for any account.So the message is clear from these attacks use unique and strong  passwords and update them  frequently.
