Hacker takes over Oculus CEO’s Twitter account, announces new CEO
Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe had his Twitter account hacked Wednesday; the hacker took the opportunity to promptly announce a new CEO for the virtual reality company.
This is just the latest in a string of tech CEO’s having their Twitter accounts compromised, this attack does not appear to be from the same hacker group responsible for the hacks on the accounts of Travis Kalanick, Sundar Pichai, Mark Zuckerberg and Dick Costolo.
It appears @Lid gained access to the account through utilizing an old password. As of the time of this writing, the CEO’s account appears to still be compromised by Twitter user @Lid.
This hacker also does not appear to be a fan of this particular publication.
