New Delhi: Hackers temporarily took over Facebook’s accounts on Twitter and Instagram on Friday through a third-party platform, raising concerns about the security of the social networks. Both accounts are back to normal.
At around 3:50 p.m., hacker group OurMine tweeted from Facebook’s Twitter account. The same group also hijacked the Twitter accounts of more than a dozen NFL teams in January before the SuperBowl and has also hacked the accounts of tech moguls such as Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
“Well, even Facebook is hackable but at least their security better than Twitter,” the group said in a tweet that has now been deleted. Hackers also compromised the Twitter account for Facebook’s messaging service.
