Twitter has confirmed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Twitter account was hacked on Thursday, and it is being reported that the cyber attack was part of a Bitcon scam.
The hacker who could break into the Twitter account of one of the Most Powerful persons in the world is code-named ‘John Wick’.
John Wick is a 2014 American action-thriller film directed by Chad Stahelski, and written by Derek Kolstad.
The film John Wick stars Keanu Reeves, Michael Nyqvist, Alfie Allen, Bridget Moynahan and many other Hollywood stars.
The story of John Wick focuses on the character John Wick, played by Holywood star Keanu Reeves, searching for the men who broke into his home, stole his vintage car and killed his puppy.
In fact, John Wick was the story of an ex-hit-man, who had come out of retirement to track down the gangsters.
Subsequently, two sequels of John Wick: Chapter 2 was released in 2017, and John Wick: Chapter 3 in 2019.
It was a strange co-incidence that the hacker chose to use the code name John Wick on September 2 to hack PM Modi’s Twitter account, which happens to be Keanu Reeves’s birthday.
The hacker ‘John Wick’ had made a series of tweets, asking PM Modi’s 2.5 million followers to donate to a relief fund through cryptocurrency.
Several screenshots of the tweets went viral on the social media, and ‘John Wick’ is likely to be the primary focus on Thursday for the media organizations in India.
