The Sony Music Group and Bob Dylan Twitter accounts were the target of a hack early this morning by the group OurMine, who were also responsible for similar incidents with Marvel Studios and Netflix earlier this year. As The Hollywood Reporter points out, the two accounts sent out tweets purporting the death of Britney Spears. “RIP @britneyspears 😢 #RIPBritney 1981-2016,” one of them read.
Soon after, the group took responsibility for the hack. OurMine ostensibly hacks these accounts as a means of advertisement for their security services.
