【科技大佬再中招!谷歌CEO账号被黑】

【科技大佬再中招!谷歌CEO账号被黑】不久前,Facebook CEO马克•扎克伯格的Twitter账户被黑客入侵(据说他用的密码是“dadada”),黑客组织OurMine宣布对此负责。这次他们又对谷歌CEO桑达尔•皮查伊(Sundar Pichai)出手了:攻破了他的Quora(相当于海外版知乎)和Twitter账号,还发推文炫耀他们的战绩,写下了“我们只是测一下你的安全性”的留言。

The hack became evident when Pichai's Twitter account began showing tweets linking to Pichai's Quora posts, referencing OurMine.
One of the tweets read, 'we are just testing your security, please visit https://ourmine.org to upgrade security!?'
They were deleted a few hours after they were posted.

The group reportedly posted a tweet, which has since been removed, that read: 'Hey, it's OurMine Team, we are just testing your security, please send us a message' followed by an email address.
A Twitter spokesperson told MailOnline the social media site itself had not been hacked.
'We are confident that these usernames and credentials were not obtained by a Twitter data breach – our systems have not been breached,' they said.
'In fact, we've been working to help keep accounts protected by checking our data against what's been shared from recent other password leaks.'
A number of other high-profile figures have been hacked, including Lana Del Rey, Drake and Kylie Jenner - although it is not yet known if those attacks are related.
Earlier this month, the website LeakedSource revealed 32,888,300 Twitter usernames and passwords were also on sale on the dark web.
The attacks were probably achieved by retrieving passwords stored in people's browsers, like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, LeakedSource said in a blog post.
'The explanation for this is that tens of millions of people have become infected by malware, and the malware sent every saved username and password from browsers like Chrome and Firefox back to the hackers from all websites including Twitter,' the blog said.

The chief executive of tech support firm Zendesk is another high-profile figure to have his Twitter account hacked, according to the BBC.
Mikkel Svane's hijacked account had its ID image changed to that of a cartoon.
LeakedSource has added the information to its search engine, which is a paid service, but lets people remove leaked information for free.
Twitter's security officer Michael Coates Tweeted: 'We have investigated reports of Twitter usernames/passwords on the dark web, and we're confident that our systems have not been breached.'
This news comes not long after it was revealed that major companies such as Facebook and Netflix are scanning through login details revealed in previous data leaks from other sites to see whether their own users' credentials match.
If they find matching passwords, they are then asking users to reset their passwords in an attempt to increase their security.
Netflix, for example, sent emails to multiple users last week who used the same password for them as they did for LinkedIn, Tumblr and Myspace a few years ago.

The message read: 'We believe your Netflix account credentials may have been included in a recent release of email addresses and passwords from an older breach at another company,
'Just to be safe, we've reset your password as a precautionary measure'.
It then added that those who want to reset their passwords again should click on 'forgot your email or password'.
Netflix said it had taken the step because they know hackers will be using the passwords obtained from previous data leaks from other organisations to try and access people's profiles on multiple other third-party sites.
Last month, the professional social network LinkedIn told members Wednesday that data from some 100 million users stolen in a 2012 hack had been leaked online, and recommended a change in passwords.
LinkedIn had said in 2012 that some 6.5 million user records may have been breached, but this week learned that a much wider set of data had leaked.
'Yesterday, we became aware of an additional set of data that had just been released that claims to be email and hashed password combinations of more than 100 million LinkedIn members from that same theft in 2012,' LinkedIn's Cory Scott said in a blog post on 18 May.
