Netflix’s Twitter account hacked

Netflix’s U.S. Twitter account was hacked Wednesday, with notorious hackers OurMine claiming credit for the attack.

OurMine hacked some high-profile accounts earlier this year, including those of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg — password “dadada”former Twitter CEOs Dick Costolo and Ev Williams, Google CEO Sundar Pichai and others. Oh, and pop star Katy Perry, too.

According to multiple reports and screenshots, OurMine was in control of the Netflix account this morning for less than an hour, and among other things tweeted that “world security is [expletive].”

While the tweets posted by the hackers have since been taken down, the Netflix customer service account shows traces of what transpired.

OurMine is a group of hackers supposedly from Saudi Arabia, and now calls itself a “security group.” It told Mic earlier this year that it is now hacking people for the purpose of promoting its security services.

A check of Netflix’s U.S. Twitter account, which has 2.48 million followers, shows it’s back to normal. Trailers for “The OA,” “Barry” and other Netflix originals are among the recent tweets.
