Hacker Group "OurMine" hack Netflix Offical Twitter Account

Netflix now trying to get back control of the account
Hackers who are part of the group called OurMine have managed to get control of the official Netflix Twitter account and post public messages to the nearly 2.5 million followers.

One of the tweet taunts Netflix’s security on Twitter, probably a week password, with a message reading “World security is s**t. We are here to prove this.”

At the time of writing this article, Netflix seems to be back in control of its Twitter account, but the company has also sent out messages using the official support account, which shows that it’s still working on recovering after the hack.
“Thank you for reaching out, Beth! We're aware of the situation and are working to get it resolved,” Netflix CS Twitter account posted a few minutes ago.
The only good thing is that the hackers aren’t trying to send out malicious links or other dangerous content, and in a tweet OurMine explained that Netflix shouldn’t “worry, we are just testing your security.”

OurMine attacks

This isn’t the first time when OurMine hacks high-profile accounts, and in the past, the group managed to get control of Twitter accounts belonging to Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg and Google chief executive Sundar Pichai.

Netflix is still trying to cope with the attack, and all tweets being posted by hackers are manually removed by the company’s employees a few seconds after being published, but it’s clear that OurMine still has access to the main Netflix account.

According to the hackers themselves, the breach happened after previously breaking into the Twitter account of Netflix's Director of Social Media, thus obtaining access to several other accounts belonging to the company.

For the moment, it’s better not to click on any links that the official Netflix account might post on Twitter, as the company is still trying to recover after the hack. More information on what happened will most likely be tweeted by Netflix later today.
