“Premium cable channel HBO has fallen victim yet again to a hacker attack. This time its official Twitter account was broken into, along with accounts for several of its most popular shows.
A group calling itself OurMine gained control of HBO’s main account Wednesday night, according to the Hollywood Reporter. It left a message in a tweet saying, “Hi, OurMine are here, we are just testing your security, HBO team please contact us to upgrade the security – ourmine .org -> Contact.”
A second tweet read, “let’s make #HBOHacked trending!”
The group also posted messages on the accounts for the shows “Vinyl,” “true Blood,” “Silicon Valley,” “Looking,” “Last Week Tonight,” “Veep” and “The Leftovers.”
A spokesperson for the channel told the Hollywood Reporter, “We are investigating.”
HBO was initially hacked several weeks ago, resulting in scripts, unaired episodes and other digital files from the channel’s servers being released onto the internet.”
