Shahid Kapoor’s Instagram & Twitter Accounts Hacked; Kriti Sanon Also Targeted


All the major tech giants appear to be doing everything in their power to improve the user security and privacy; Google just launched their strong password suggestions to maximize sign-in credentials further. But at the end of the day, the ultimate responsibility to keep passwords safe lies in the users’ hands.

In a shocking development, a hacker group, which calls itself Ayyildiz Tim, has hacked Twitter and Instagram accounts of popular Hindi movie star Shahid Kapoor. A similar incident also targeted actress Kriti Sanon; her Twitter account was hacked just before a few days.

Previously, the same Turkish group had also claimed to have hacked Twitter accounts of a bunch of prominent Bollywood stars, including Amitabh Bachan, Anupam Kher, and others.

The alleged hacker group posted several images and posts which appear to be in the Turkish language.

An image from the movie “Padmaavat,” in which Shahid Kapoor played the role of protagonist, was also posted along with abusing captions.

While both the Instagram and Twitter accounts of Shahid Kapoor have been recovered, we have managed to compile a list of screenshots of the posts shared by the hacker group. Take a look:
