Kiran Bedi, Anupam Kher Twitter accounts hacked by pro-Pakistan cyber group

Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher, who is currently in Los Angeles, said that he came to know about the breach from one of his friend from India.

In a major bleach of cyber security, the Twitter accounts of Puducherry Governor Kiran Bedi, veteran actor and Chairman of Film and Television Institute of India Anupam Kher, BJP general secretary Ram Madhav and Rajya Sabha MP Swapan Dasgupta were hacked by pro-Pakistan Turkey-based cyber group Ayyildiz Tim.

In one of the tweets from the hacked accounts, the cyber group said, “We are protesting the continuous closure of our social media accounts! As long as you do not remove the embargo that you apply to us, all social media users around the world are at risk!”

In another tweet, it mentioned, “Your account has been hacked by the Turkish cyber army Ayyildiz Tim. Your DM correspondence and important data have been captured! Turkiye & Pakistan (heart emoji).”

Stating that she was on flight, after which she got to know that her account has been blocked, Puducherry Governor Kiran Bedi said, “There were concerns on my WhatsApp messages as what kind of terror messages were coming from my Twitter account. I could not even log on to my personal account. The user name has also been hacked.”

Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher, who is currently in Los Angeles, said that he came to know about the breach from one of his friend from India.

Stating that he had already alerted the micro-blogging site about the hack, Kher said, “Got a DM yesterday from Mr Swapan Dasgupta’s account about a link. A first from him. So opened it. Have spoken to Twitter already.”

Rajya Sabha MP Swapan Dasgupta account was hacked with a note saying, “Caution: This account is temporarily restricted. You’re seeing this warning because there has been some unusual activity from this account. Do you still want to view it?”

In a statement, Twitter asserted that its “teams are working to resolve an issue affecting a small number of Indian users. We will notify affected account holders directly. Reminder: do not click on links in DMs coming from unknown accounts”
