It has been alleged that Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google, has become the latest victim of a group of hackers who attacked Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts earlier this month.
It was reportedly Zuckerberg who busted the three man hacking team that were known as OurMine but the group have struck again accessing Pichai’s Quora account.
The hack came to light when messages posted on the account, which was linked to his Twitter account, show OurMine responding to questions and telling users that they have gained control.
The group gained access to Pichai’s account, according to The Next Web, by “exploiting a vulnerability in Quora’s platform”.
Pichai has now regained control of his account and deleted the messages.
The OurMine group has been targeting high profile people in the technology industry to promote themselves as a security firm.
They are offering assistance and support to those that they have attacked. The Group also claim that they made the popular question and answer site Quora aware of the exploit but failed to gain any response.
It goes without saying, if you use Quora now may be a good time to change your password.
