Hackers took over the official SEC Twitter account early Saturday morning. The hackers posted a few images of scantily clad women.
The SEC released a statement about the incident.
“We became aware of it when we saw some retweets. The images were removed immediately, our password changed and we notified Twitter. We will, of course, continue to monitor the account closely today.”
– Herb Vincent, SEC Spokesman
Earlier this month, the NFL’s Twitter account fell victim to hackers, with three unauthorized messages sent out.
Following the incident, the NFL said it was strengthening its online security – a measure that several huge Twitter entities should do to avoid the issue.
