On Monday afternoon, the official Green Bay Packers history tweeted a now-deleted message that alleged to be from the OurMine hacking group. “We are here to show people that everything is hackable to improve your reports security[ sic ], ” the tweet read.
The Green Bay Packers’ avatar was also removed from the team’s official Twitter account. Fox News has reached out to the Green Bay Packers with a request for comment on this story.
The Kansas City Chiefs’ official Twitter note was similarly endangered, according to the Kansas City Star. While the theme from OurMine had been deleted from the Chiefs’ Twitter account, the team’s avatar was not observable on the account for a period on Monday. The avatar was subsequently restored.
The San Francisco 49 ers’ avatar was also temporarily missing from the team’s official Twitter account on Monday, as well as some of the details that describe the chronicle, although the issue is recovered. “We are aware of the issue and are working with NFL cyber security and the programmes to address it, ” a spokesman for the San Francisco 49 ers told Fox News, via email on Monday afternoon.
On Sunday, the Chicago Bears’ official Twitter report was also spoofed. The Chicago Sun-Times reports that a sham report tweet, which has since been deleted, was sent out announcing that the team had been sold to a Saudi government official.
“Apologies that our detail was endangered this morning. We’re back in video games& prepared for the Pro Bowl, ” the Chicago Bears subsequently tweeted.
CBS Sports reported that over a dozen NFL team Twitter details have been hacked.
