Twitter Account of I&B Ministry Compromised, Hackers Tweet in the Name of ‘Elon Musk’

The official Twitter account of the ministry of information and broadcasting was compromised on Wednesday morning. Hackers started tweeting in the name of Elon Musk, and also renamed the account. The ministry, however, restored the account.

The ministry’s senior adviser, Kanchan Dasgupta, told CNN-News18, “The matter was brought to our notice and we immediately went ahead and got the account restored.”

Sources said as of now the I&B ministry had not made any request to ministry of information and technology to probe the matter.
