White hat security group OurMine claimed responsibility for taking over the verified twitter accounts of Marvel, The Avengers, Ant-Man, Captain America, Tony Stark and the unverified account of Incredible Hulk.
Marvel, Tony Stark, Avengers Twitter Accounts Hacked By OurMine
There were lot’s of hacking stuff going on. OurMine is a group of a hacking team who has an interesting track on hacked Twitter accounts. The group previously managed to hack twitter accounts of Jimmy Wales, Mark Zuckerberg, and even Sundar Pichai.
Recently hackers group OurMine got control of the official Twitter account of NetFlix and few more twitter accounts. Yesterday the white hat security group OurMine claimed responsibility for taking over the verified Twitter accounts of Marvel, The Avengers, Ant-Man, Captain America, Tony Stark and the unverified account of Incredible Hulk.
So, now Avengers are getting hacked. OurMine had some records of hacking Twitter accounts as we mentioned above. However, they did not harm and only laughed at the weak security system of the impacted companies. One of the tweets posted by the NFL account read “Hey, It’s OurMine, don’t worry, we are just testing your security, contact us to tell you more about your security.”
This similar message was tweeted from other hacked Twitter accounts as well. The hacker group didn’t post any malicious links. OurMine team didn’t share any information regarding how they get access to so many accounts in just one day.
It’s likely that all the compromised accounts are using the same password, although there’s a slight chance to see Marvel setting up similar passwords for its associated accounts. One thing is common in all the hacks perform by OurMine team, the group always tries to highlight the weak security system of the companies.
