NFL Responds to Widespread Hack That Hijacked Social Media Accounts (Variety)


The NFL, a week before Super Bowl LIV, was targeted by a hacking collective that temporarily commandeered social media accounts across Twitter and other platforms for the league and multiple teams. In the attack, 15 of the NFL’s teams — including the Super Bowl-bound Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers — as well as the league itself had their Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram accounts hacked starting Sunday, the BBC reported.
