Abhinav Bindra's Twitter account hacked by Turkish hackers
Former India shooter and Beijing Olympics gold medallist Abhinav Bindra’s official Twitter account fell prey to a cyber attack on late Monday evening. The account was not only hacked but a couple of tweets were made. One of the tweets said, “Operation in Afrin, I support Turkey.” As a security measure, the account though was later temporarily suspended.
Bindra isn’t the first Indian to have his/her account hacked this month. Last week, a slew of attacks saw Anupam Kher, Abhishek Bachchan, Swapan Dasgupta, Ram Madhav, Kiran Bedi and Pritish Nandy’s social media presence compromised on the microblogging service. The accounts have been hacked by a group that goes by the name of “Turkish Cyber Army”.
