Eileen Davidson’s Twitter Account Hacked | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

UPDATED: Less than a week after the Twitter account belonging to “General Hospital” star Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) was hacked comes word that another soap star’s Twitter account was also hacked. This time, it’s Eileen Davidson who plays Ashley Abbott on “The Young and the Restless.”

Unlike Grahn’s hacked account (now back in her control), which depicted racist, anti-government and pro-Trump rhetoric, Davidson’s hacked account displayed tweets promoting the sale of electronics, as noted in a tweet by the official Twitter account for “The Young and the Restless,” which alerted fans of the matter.

“PSA! Eileen Davidson’s Twitter has been hacked. We are working to resolve issue. In the meantime, the account is NOT her  own and she is not moonlighting selling Electronics!!” read a tweet by the @YRInsider handle on Saturday, June 24 at 5:50 p.m. EDT, the earliest known reporting of the hacking. The hack seemingly took place on Friday, June 23, based on screenshots taken by Soap Opera Network of at least two known tweets posted to Davidson’s account.

“Hello Twitter family ! I have a special promotion going on ! I have 10 2023 MacBook Pro’s on sale for $600 each ! On top of that I will be signing every MacBook that is sold , also free shipping is included ! All proceeds will be going to charity ! My DMs are opened ! Thank you,” read the first tweet, which clearly tried to fool fans of the actress into taking part in a scam. A follow-up tweet said, “Only 4 more MacBooks left $600 each , we are at the final leg ! I appreciate everyone’s who bought a MacBook ! Remember if you buy 2 at a time I’ll let it go for $500 each.”

At press time, Davidson’s Twitter account was in private mode and tweets could only be seen by those who were already followers prior to the mode change. Additionally, the two tweets posted by the hacker have since been deleted, with the most current tweet published on June 15, wherein Davidson herself said, “Thank you for all the incredible birthday wishes! I’m so grateful. It’s been a lovely lovely day!” Davidson’s birthday is June 15.

While Grahn eventually regained access to her Twitter account @NancyLeeGrahn) the same day of the hack, it’s unknown whether the tweets made by the Davidson hacker being deleted indicate the actress is back in control of her account. Also, despite having a blue check mark next to her name, which once removed any doubt about the validity of a verified Twitter user account pre-Musk era, it’s unclear whether the mark was there prior to the hack or only after the hack.

A tweet published on Davidson’s account (still in private mode) at 10:02 p.m. EDT on June 26 said, “Sorry to say I was hacked last week. I’m so sorry if you sent money to these a**holes.”

This post will be updated once it’s confirmed Davidson does in fact have her account back in her control.
