”Hey, it’s OurMine, don’t worry we are just testing your security, contact us to give your account back ,Thanks!”
For your information, OurMine is a Saudi Arabia-based group of hackers looking to compromise social media accounts of high profile celebs and famous personalities. Until now, they have claimed accounts of Pokémon Go’s creator John Hanke, Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai, Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg, etc.
At the time of publishing this article; Zach Klein’s Twitter was restored while Alexa Losey’s account was still hacked and displaying message left by OurMine in the bio section.
Using the same password for all of your accounts is like having one key that unlocks every door in your life. It would be extremely unwise for a person to just rely on one key to unlock the doors to their home, their car, their office and their safety deposit box, because if that key were to get lost, it would simultaneously create multiple high-risk situations that need to be addressed quickly.
Use different and strong passwords for each and every site you login on a daily basis.
