NBC News twitter account hacked

 September 11th is coming up and hackers are taking advantage of it. Now in my opinion its very sad that they would try to take advantage of such a sad time in America's history however I guess they don't care. On the NBC twitter account they hacked they replaced it with fake news that another flight was taken over as seen in these NakedSecurity photos. When I went to take a look twitter has suspended the NBCNews account and it can no longer be accessed. It's just sad and the first posts most likely gave a huge scare to a lot of people, especially since enough people were tweeting about it that it became a trending topic.

 Always remember to use a set of strong passwords to prevent something like this from happening on your account.
