The official Twitter accounts of Facebook and its messaging app Messenger were hacked and the cybercriminals posted messages from both the platforms.

The hackers also temporarily took over Facebook’s accounts on Instagram through a third-party platform and posted a photo of the hackers’ group.

“Hi, we are O u r M i n e. Well, even Facebook is hackable but at least their security better than Twitter,” posted the hackers.

A Twitter spokesperson confirmed to POLITICO the accounts “were hacked through a third-party platform”.

Twitter declined to name the third-party platform, but a screenshot of the tweets show that the posts came from social media management tool Khoros, reports CNET.

Khoros is a web service used by digital marketing and PR departments to manage social media accounts, and is connected to a social media account as a third-party app.

“As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we locked the compromised accounts and are working closely with our partners at Facebook to restore them,” the spokesperson added.

The hacker group OurMine hijacked in the past Twitter accounts of more than a dozen NFL teams in January before the SuperBowl.

The same group has also compromised Twitter accounts of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
