The hackers are having a great run. On the heels of Anupam Kher, it is now Abhishek Bachchan whose Twitter account has been hacked.
The actor has had his Twitter handle filled with messages in Turkish, which suggest that his account has been hacked by the group called the Turkish Cyber Army Ayyildiz Tim. It is evidently a ‘Pro-Pakistan’ group. “One of India's most famous actors, @juniorbachchana, has been hacked by us. We got DM correspondence and information. As long as Twitter continues to close our social media accounts, our hacking attacks will continue,” read a post on their Twitter handle.
This comes a day after the accounts of actor Anupam Kher and other BJP insiders Swapan Dasgupta, Kiran Bedi and Ram Madhav were also compromised.
Yesterday Kher had put out a tweet warning his followers not to open any Direct Messages (DM) sent through his account on Twitter, writing, “To everyone on Twitter: please don’t open any link sent on your direct messages, however genuine they appear. That is the tool hackers are using to hack into your account. Please share this message with as many people as you can. Thanks.
