A hacker group calling themselves Scriptkiddies has broken into one of Fox News’ Twitter accounts and used it to disseminate fake news about the assassination of president Obama.The account’s icon had been changed from the Fox News Politics logo and featured the following new description: “H4CK3D BY TH3 5CR1PT K1DD3S.”
After tweeting a suspicious message on the Fox News Politics account claiming the company had regained the control over that account, they started tweeting messages about a shooting in which President Obama was fatally wounded.
“BREAKING NEWS: President @BarackObama assassinated, 2 gunshot wounds have proved too much. It’s a sad 4th for #america. #obamadead RIP,” said one of the tweets.
