Hackers Catch "Pokemon Go" Creator's Twitter And Quora Accounts

Hacking group OurMine has struck again, this time targeting the twitter account of Pokemon Go creator John Hanke. Hanke was apparently too busy catching them all to have done any password hygenics. This neglect allowed the hackers to easily breach his Quora account, which led to the twitter account being compromised. The account still displayed tweets by the hackers at the time of this article (archived). Mr. Hanke is merely the latest in a series of attacks targeting high-profile users on social media, this is likely fallout from the trove of passwords leaked by the hacker Peace. Him in our time.
