The Twitter accounts for several of the cable network’s most popular shows were also hacked.
HBO’s official Twitter account was the victim of an apparent hack Wednesday, as were the accounts of several of the cable network’s shows.
Following hot on the heels of a wider hack on the company’s network in late July, hackers had gained control of HBO’s main account and several show accounts on Wednesday night and left a message which read: “Hi, OurMine are here, we are just testing your security, HBO team please contact us to upgrade the security – ourmine .org -> Contact.”
A later tweet read, “let’s make #HBOHacked trending!”
Affected show accounts included those for Vinyl, True Blood, Silicon Valley, Looking, Last Week Tonight, Veep and The Leftovers.
