BTS gets targeted by hacker group OurMine after NCT127, ARMY trolls them right back with #BTSHack
The hack attack didn't last long, however, since they were quickly shut out of the BTS Japan Official Twitter account and ARMYs instead turned the tables on the hackers
OurMine is at it again.
After their years of targetting Twitter accounts belonging to various celebrities and brands including Mark Zuckerberg, Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Sony President Shuhei Yoshida, Netflix, Marvel, National Geographic, and even Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, as well as websites belonging to BuzzFeed, Medium and Wikipedia, they have now made their way into KPop.
Which, if one were being perfectly honest, is expected. No one can resist the Hallyu (that's Chinese for 'Korean Wave'). Not even hackers.
And so, hacker group OurMine went after SME's South Korean boy band NCT127 on Twitter with their signature "Everything if hackable" message and further added messages of how they come in peace and will not change any account information, as their only goal is to make people aware of account security. And, ofcourse, advertise their hacking services by trying to get a hashtag trending.
And just a day later, they've come for BTS. And neither Big Hit Entertainment nor BTS fandom 'ARMY' were willing to stand it. Fans got a glimpse of OurMine on the BTS Japan Official Twitter account and were probably terrified for all of a few minutes as the tweet disappeared as quickly as it showed up.
One fan saved some screenshots of the ordeal with this tweet: "Bighit got those bulletproof walls / hackers got nothing on them". But the ARMYs were quick to 'hack' the #BTSHack hashtag that OurMine wanted to get trending.
Well, it is trending, but the joke is on them instead.
Other ARMYs are anticipating some new music from the KPop group dissing OurMine, tweeting "RAPLINE making a diss song about #BTSHack right now." Some users had some requests from the hacker group, even including videos as a handy guide for them to get started: "Hack blackpink the rest of the girls solos."
This user, however, makes a rather valid point, "Why would someone pay ourmine $30 so they can hack the bts’ japan twt acc when y’all could’ve used it on mots 7"
But since OurMine is unlikely to step back and listen to 'Map of the Soul:7' like the rest of us, only this question remains: "Stop i wonder who gets hacked next."
