Twitter account of Indian ambassador to UN hacked



According to Hindustan Times, The Twitter account of ambadssador to UN was hacked. Two photographs of Pakistan’s flag and the neighbour country’s President Mamnoon Hussain were posted from the Twitter account of India’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Syed Akbaruddin.

The pictures were posted during the wee hours of Sunday, and interestingly, the “blue tick” that marks a verified account also disappeared at the time.

The account was later restored along with the blue tick and the questionable tweets were also removed.

Evidently, cyber attack has not been a new strategy for the terrorists in Pakistan, and government officials have been prime targets.
