Google CEO Social Media Account Hacked

Hacking group OurMine, the group responsible for breaking into Mark Zuckerberg's Twitter account has claimed another victim. Google CEO Sundar Pichai had his account on Quora taken over by the hackers on Sunday, who then used the account to auto post a tweet saying "We are just testing your security". The messages and tweets were removed by Monday morning, and no statement from Google or Mr. Pichai was available. OurMine has said it will continue to hack the accounts of tech executives and celebrities, and made good on their promise by also hacking the account of Amazon CTO Werner Vogels. OurMine claims to have made $18,400 selling it's web and social-media account security services.
