Sundar Pichai’s Quora account hacked!

By : |June 27, 2016 0

After breaking into Facebook head Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter and Pinterest accounts earlier this month, the group called OurMine has apparently hacked Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai Quora account now

The gang has been posting messages on Quora through Pichai’s account and as it’s connected to his Twitter account, OurMine was able to publicize their hack to all 508,000 of his followers. Though the tweets have now been removed, the screenshot is available with us.

OurMine has been targeting major tech execs of late, including Spotify’s Daniel Ek. The group presents itself as a ‘security firm’ offering its support to those it targets so that these incidents don’t occur again. (Surely not the best way to buy customers)

Speaking to TNW, OurMine said, “We are just testing people security (sic), we never change their passwords, we did it because there is other hackers can hack them and change everything.”

The group also noted that it managed to break into Pichai’s account by exploiting a vulnerability in Quora’s platform – one that it claims to have reported to the company, with no response.
