Jeep Twitter account hacked by apparent Cadillac enthusiasts
Question of the Day
In what appears to be a connected cyberhack, a photo of a group of young black males in a decked out McDonald's mobile was briefly posted to Jeep’s Twitter background at about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday. One of the males held a Ronald McDonald doll out the window.
The account tweeted “WELCOME BACK CADILLAC #300” as well as a picture of a man smoking what appears to be marijuana out of a hollowed-out lightbulb, with a caption reading, “Sorry guys, no more @Jeep production because we caught our CEO doing this.”
The icon representing the hacked account also features a Cadillac symbol.
Burger King’s Twitter profile was hacked Monday afternoon with a profile picture of McDonald's golden arches. The profile also featured pictures of Chicken McNuggets, a McDonald's classic, and the restaurant’s newest addition to their menu, Fish McBites.
The hacker posted a photo of a man injecting a syringe into his arm in a bathroom with the caption, “We caught one of our employees in the bathroom doing this … #soldtomcdonalds #failurewhopper”
There have been reports that Anonymous is in connection with the Burger King hack.
