Leave.EU chairman’s Twitter hacked

A hacker hijacked the Twitter account of Arron Banks, chairman of the pro-Brexit UK political campaign organization Leave.EU, and leaked his private message history online earlier this week. The BBC yesterday reported that the culprit had access to thousands of private messages that had been sent and received by Banks over several years. The Register further reported that the hacked Twitter account was used to spread links to a Mega.nz download page that hosted a dump of the messages. Banks’ account has been suspended and the file is reportedly no longer available online.
