Yesterday, along with Abhishek Bachchan, Nimrat Kaur’s twitter account was also hacked by group of hackers, by the name of Turkish Cyber Army.
The same group had earlier hacked veteran Anupam Kher’s Twitter account.
Nimrat says that she found her account compromised when she opened a direct message sent to her.
“I opened the message and the next thing I know is that the access to my account was gone. This happened on Tuesday night.”
“Through the night, the hackers tried to break into my Gmail and Instagram accounts. I kept getting notifications. I didn’t consider taking up the matter with the cops because Twitter was at work on this,” she added.
Abhishek Bachchan was a tad more fortunate than Kaur.
While the verification tick on his account had vanished and his timeline had several tweets in Turkish as a result of the hacking.
The support centre promptly restored his account by evening.
He tweeted, “Yes, yes my account got hacked. Quite chuffed that they thought me interesting enough actually…”.
Day by day, twitter saw intense activity as a group of hackers.–CINEWS
