Shatrughan Sinha’s Twitter Account Hacked; Veteran Actor's Name Changed To 'Elon Musk'
Ouch! This time, falling prey to online hacking is politician and actor Shatrughan Sinha. The senior actor' Twitter account was hacked by a cybercriminal, who went on to change his Twitter account name to Space X founder Elon Musk. Along with his name, the hacker also changed his profile picture. Hacker replaced the actor’s picture with a picture of a rocket being launched in space. But seems like the actor did not notice till he tweeted and it was brought to his notice.

Apparently, the hacker though changed his name and his profile picture, kept the account’s password unchanged. Hence, when the actor tweeted about his amazing conversation with Shashi Tharoor, the new picture and name were very much visible. Take a look at the tweet below: 
He Tweeted, “What a fantastic conversation between two popular, respectable, acceptable, able, politicians! The sauve, intellectual par excellence Shashi Tharoor & the outspoken, courageous, forthright TMC leader Mauhua Moitra as he chats with her on India@75. They talk about how times, democracy etc have changed over the years. Your feedback & comments are most welcome. Jai Hind! A not to be missed interview!”

Therefore, one of his followers Tweeted, “I'm confused did he really change his name and profile picture or was it hacked and he started tweeting without checking.” Another follower informed the actor of his account being hacked, “your account is hacked sir!” Followers even questioned if the actor was able to access his Twitter account or not. Later, may not the actor was informed about it, to get the necessary changes to his account. 

Besides Shatrughan Sinha, politician Khushbu Sundar’s Twitter account was also hacked in July 2021. ALSO READ: Kangana Ranaut’s Instagram Account Gets Hacked; Actress Feels There Is ‘A Very Big International Conspiracy’
