Twitter account of PM Modi’s personal website hacked

The Twitter account, which is linked to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s personal website, appeared to have been hacked as crpytic tweets were posted on Thursday. The tweets, which were deleted after 30 mins, posted a series of messages related to bitcoin.

In a series of tweets related to crypto currency, the messages posted on PM Narendra Modi’s Twitter account linked to his online portal read: “I appeal to you all to donate generously to PM National Relief Fund for Covid-19, Now India begin with crypto currency, Kindly Donate eth to 0xae073DB1e5752faFF169B1ede7E8E94bF7f80Be6.”

“This account is hacked by John Wick ([email protected]), We have not hacked Paytm Mall,” another tweet read.

The verified Twitter account, which is linked to PM Narendra Modi’s personal website, has over 2.5 million followers.

On August 30, cybersecurity firm Cyble had claimed hacker group John Wick was behind a “massive” data breach at Paytm Mall, the e-commerce arm of unicorn Paytm. Cyble had claimed the hacker group had also demanded ransom, as it had got unrestricted access to the firm’s database. Paytm had, however, said it had not found any data breach during an investigation.

Earlier in July, Twitter accounts of popular verified users like Warren Buffet, Jeff Bezos, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Joe Biden, and Elon Musk among others were compromised as messages related to crpytocurrency were posted on their acounts.
