Minister Condemns Hackers for Liking a Porn on Twitter

 

Christopher Pyne senior minister of Australian government recently condemned Web-hackers as behind compromising his official A/C on twitter.com and using it to share a distinct gay porn twitter message. The message that contained one web-link taking onto a video showing a gay porn film seemingly arrived at 2am on November 16, 2017.

 

Pyne asserts when his account was hacked, he was sleeping. The hack occurred overnight. The MP said somebody attempted at infiltrating his social media account. Possibly it was some mischievous person playing prank about the plebiscite, Pyne wrote in his twitter message.

 

A few Twitter visitors tweeted in response to Pyne's message with doubt whereas other visitors expressed worry regarding potential security problems. Gearsofbiz.com posted this, November 16, 2017.

 

Following Pyne's twitter hack, accountholders pointed it out over twitter.com. Some were even Australians living in foreign countries. Bill Shorten Labor Party member stated that the hack into Christopher Pyne's A/C worried him. He further stated it was extremely grave when a government minister was a victim of hack, particularly if that minister was in-charge-of defense, so it was necessary for investigating it thoroughly. According to him, problems already existed regarding security such as the government's private contractors whose defense information was endangered.

 

The post on Pyne's A/C has been discarded after the hack. In one of his recent tweets, the minister mentioned delivering a speech at Australian War Memorial held Defense and Industry Study Course Dinner on the night of November 15. Previously in 2017 itself, authorities sought an explanation from Border Force officers regarding the reason of a porn tweet being liked from the twitter account of Commissioner Roman Quaedvlieg. There was one similar scandal within USA before this incident wherein the account of Ted Cruz Republican Senator had shared one porn post.

 

Ted Cruz the Sen. as well as presidential candidate in 2016 stated that many supporters were equipped with accessing his account while one aide mistakenly pursued one post shared from Cruz's A/C @SexuallPosts that consisted of one 2-min extract from some porn movie. Cruz explained the incident was a staff-related matter, a mistaken action rather than deliberate.
