The website and Twitter account of high-tech automaker Tesla were hacked over the weekend as part of a prank by angry rival hackers. Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s personal twitter account was also hacked around Saturday night (US Standard Time).
The first sign of hijacking was noticed around 1:52 p.m., when the company’s Twitter account had a tweet that declared it being under the control of attackers and the name changed from “Tesla Motors” to “#RIPPRGANG”. The tweet posted on the carmaker’s account said, “This Twitter is now run [sic] by Henry Blair Strater [sic] from Oswego Illinois, call me at [number redacted]”.
Elon Musk’s Twitter account was hijacked by miscreants who claimed to be from the infamous Lizard Squad Hacking crew, known as Autismsquad.
