PayPal UK twitter account hacked

 It seems sites are not the only target of hackers now. Today Paypals twitter account was hacked. As the site was hacked it was posting messages trying to send them to an Anti-Paypal site dedicated to exposing Paypal.

 That means we have had two popular twitter accounts (fox news and now PayPal UK) hacked. If your company is running social pages then make sure you take the same steps to secure then as you would your own companies. Twitter accounts and other social media accounts should be treated as if they are part of your own site with steps taken to protect them. Which means using a strong password and making sure only the people who need access to it have the password.
