    Hey Guys,
    Today evening, the officially verified twitter handle of Indian Political party, Congress vice president Rahul Gandh appeared to have been hacked . A series of abusive tweets were sent out from the handle to its 1.21 million followers.

    The handle seems to have been hacked by a group called 'legion', according to one of the tweets. The hackers seem to have access to Rahul's profile for about an hour.

    Here are some of the tweets that came out of the hacked handle:

    Have you ever heard of the hacker's group Legion? How do you see it ? Keep thread informative and technical rather than being biased towards a political party.

    Note to moderator: This is my first ever thread. I am not sure if it's okay or not to discuss things like this. Please delete it if it's not allowed. Cheers.

    I have no idea why this thread shouldn't be allowed. I mean, I don't want any political discussion here. It was more about informing about this hack and to know how to keep your social account secure in the era where even the official accounts are not safe.

    I lobe BHW community and do know it's potential. So, I thought I might be able to know more about this hackers group and how he could have done it. I mean, except the name of hacked account, there is nothing political about this thread. It's more about online security and precautions.

    Anyways, I will wait for any moderators comment on whether this should be removed from BHW. I love this community and I don't want to disobey any rules here :)

    Cheers.

    No, that doesn't make it political thread. A political would be a thread about his policies and/or proposed policies.

    Or a discussion about politics way/methods about a country or a politic party.

    OP are asking about the legion group hackers not about this sir of India. So don't have sense report the thread.

    Hackers usually focus on some big target to get attention, some random common guy isn't going to make news by being hacked.
