Former CS:GO player, PUBG streamer famous Shroud spent a not so happy weekend when becoming the next victim of account hacking. After taking over a man’s Twitter account streamer, hacker sent a request to follow a bunch of other Twitter accs and threatened to post his hot pictures online if he didn’t fulfill his request. The hacker even claimed to have access to pictures of Shroud’s girlfriend, Hannah “Bnans” Kennedy, and promised to post these images if he didn’t have enough followers.
Shroud is currently the 2nd most followed streamer on the Twitch platform. Of course, the more famous, the more hackers target. Unfortunately, no one can foresee and prevent this. Not only Shroud, recently Dr. Disrespect also has a lot of trouble with hackers when it loses control of both Twitch and Twitter accounts at the same time.
Many followers of Shroud then had to receive spam emails with bad words and content. Fortunately for Shroud, however, he quickly realized this and it only took about 30 minutes to get his account back. Everything was handled quite quickly, the male streamer then also apologized to the fans.
It is quite common for hackers to take advantage of celebrity accounts to earn followers. In the case of Shroud, the fact that stealing the password and then accessing the image files on the computer to upload it to the network is not high, but if not handled in time, how serious the consequences will be, no one will ever know. predictable. Faced with this problem, perhaps Twitter needs to strengthen its security even more, checking and patching any vulnerabilities that hackers can get through. Now, it seems that Shroud’s Twitter account is back to normal.
