Twitter hackers have recently attacked Chrysler's Jeep brand, of whom, they not only replaced the profile image with a Cadillac logo but also they changed their background image to a car bearing the McDonald's logo.
Under the effect of hacking, the @Jeep Twitter feed was defaced on Tuesday. The website showed several quoted messages of the hackers to the brand's 106,000 followers. The messages read that Cadillac has purchased the brand as its employees were caught taking pain pills in the bathroom etc.
Investigations ongoing in the case have revealed that the hack attack was perpetrated by Twitter users' @LILINTERNET, @DFNTSC, and @GUHTI_. But the charges have been denied by @LILINTERNET in its today's released statements. Rather it has blamed @GUHTI_ for the hack.
Today afternoon, the situations got under control as the Jeep profile feed and background image both returned to normal. Also, the experts have already deleted all the offending tweets posted.
A spokeswoman for Chrysler (the owner of the Jeep brand) said, "We are aware of it and working to quickly resolve the issue."
Last weekend, there was news of hacking of the @BurgerKing feed. The attackers changed the fast food chain's profile picture with its rival McDonald's picture, writing that it has purchased Burger King.
