The Twitter account of the Punjab unit of the Congress was hacked on Monday morning. The account posted over 100 tweets in a few minutes, tagging random accounts, most of which seemed to be bots and related to activities around digital assets like non-fungible tokens (NFT) and cryptocurrencies.
The display picture and cover image of the account were also removed.
This is the fourth high-profile Twitter account hacked in as many days. The Twitter account of the University Grant Commission was hacked late on Saturday. Earlier, the Twitter accounts of the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister’s Office and the Indian Meteorological Department of India were similarly hacked.
All the hacks seem to have been carried out by the same person or group as the criminals tweeted similar content — related to digital assets and currencies — from the compromised accounts.
