Days after Rahul Gandhi’s and Vijay Mallya’s twitter account got hacked, NDTV senior journalists Barkha Dutt’s and Ravish Kumar’s official twitter handle were hacked by ‘Legion’ on Saturday night.
The hackers posted official e-mail id and password of Barkha Dutt. They also posted a series of offensive tweets threatening to make a dump of her email soon.
The tweets were deleted within a few minutes.
Hackers tweeted from Ravish Kumar’s account ” If we go to jail or die, at least we did it with a bang. If anyone of us gets arrested, over 1 TB of confidential data will be leaked.”
The group defended itself, saying “We use Twitter as a means to reach the public. We don’t just hack twitter accounts. Go through the data and find out.”
The hacker group also announced the next series of online attack will be against former IPL chairman Lalit K Modi.
