The Twitter accounts of the European Commissioner for Enlargement Johannes Hahn and of NATO former Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen were taken over by the Turkish hacker group Ayyildiz over the weekend.
The hacker group posted pro-Erdogan tweets from both accounts.
“I want to make a confession! We knew that the coup was going to take place on July 15th. But we haven’t to help Turkey. That is why NATO must apologize to Mr. Erdogan. ” the group tweeted through Rasmussen’s account.
Meanwhile, the group posted on Hahn’s account the following: “In Turkey, it will be held on June 24, I wish success to Cumhur Alliance in the presidential election. Achievements.”
Hahn’s account was recovered while Rasmussen’s was still under the hackers’ control at the time of the writing.
Earlier, the same group hacked the social media accounts of US TV hosts Greta Van Susteren, Eric Bolling and German magazine Der Spiegel’s editor-in-chief Klaus Brinkbäumer.
