Oculus CEO’s Twitter Account Hacked

It’s been a busy month for both hackers and top CEOs in the world. The latest in the list to fall victim to hackers is the Oculus CEO, Brendan Iribe. Earlier this month, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter was compromised and later Google CEO Sundar Pichai’s Quora account fell prey to hackers.

On Thursday morning, the hackers tweeted from Iribe’s account. “We here @oculus are very excited to announce our new CEO. @Lid ! :)” read the tweet.

Even after two hours of the first tweet they were still visible on the page with new ones coming at intervals. It appears whether Iribe was not aware of the hack for a long time or the security team at Twitter is having a hard time taking back control of the handle. The hacker on the other hand seemed to be having fun.

A Twitter user named Qui, @Lid, is apparently behind the hack. The handle owner tweeted from his own account saying, “Lol just became CEO of this shit company @oculus.”

Declaring himself the CEO was just the beginning of a series of tweets. He later tweeted, “imagine creating the coolest s*** to ever be introduced to gaming and technology but using the same pass for 4 years lol… silly mr CEO!”

In other tweets the hacker demanded from Iribe to send him a free Oculus Rift VR. “If Brendan wants his twitter back i want a free oculus rift so i can watch porn the cool way,” the hacker said.

Brendan Iribe was not the only one the hacker wanted to mess with. When Lucas Matney, a TechCrunch blogger, tweeted in reaction to the new CEO tweet, the hacker sent out another tweet from the Oculus CEO’s handle, an offensive one this time.

“TechCrunch…. more like TechLame…. amirite boyz,” he tweeted.

At the time of this report, all the tweets had been deleted, apparently by Twitter’s team.

Earlier this month, Mark Zuckerberg’s Twitter was also hacked, although, the Twitter hack was caused due to a LinkedIn hack which happened back in 2012. Unfortunately for Zuckerberg, he had been using the same password for both LinkedIn and Twitter. To add insult to the injury the password was “dadada”.
