The Ministry has clarified that the hacked Central Information and Broadcasting (I&B) twitter account has now been restored.
The twitter handle of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) was hacked on wednesday by hackers who have hacked twitter accounts and changed the account name to Elon Musk. In addition, hackers began to tweet “great job” as “Elon Musk”.
However, the alert ministry immediately reinstated its twitter account. Also, the tweets made by the hackers have secured the account. “@Mib_india account has been restored.
This is for all followers’ information, ”the ministry tweeted after restoring the account. The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (I&B) has 1.4 million followers on Twitter.
Exactly a month ago on december 12, 2021, prime minister Narendra Modi’s personal twitter handle was hacked. “India has officially accepted Bitcoin as a legal tender,” the tweet read. But a few minutes later the tweet was deleted and the Prime Minister’s account was restored.
On january 3, the accounts of the indian Council of World Affairs (ICWA), the indian Medical Association (IMA), and the Mann Desi Women’s bank (Micro Finance Bank) were hacked. At that time, the hackers had renamed the handle to Elon Musk.
Although the tweeted links look different in both cases, the content posted is ‘Amazing’.
