Google’s Sundar Pichai has been hacked – which CEO will be next?
Google CEO Sundar Pichai has become the latest tech executive to have a social media account hacked, and the group responsible says more targets will follow.
On Sunday, a group of hackers calling themselves OurMine briefly took over Pichai’s account on Quora, a question-and-answer site.
“We are just testing your security,” the hackers wrote, with the same message auto-posted via Quora to Pichai’s Twitter account. On Monday, the posts had been deleted.
OurMine is the same group that hacked the social media accounts of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg earlier this month, and they’ve claimed other victims too, including the CEO of Spotify and a prominent Amazon executive.
