Now BMW’s Instagram and Twitter accounts hacked, after Kia | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

BMW, a German automobile company’s Instagram and Twitter accounts have been hacked. The Bavarian manufacturer’s Twitter and Instagram accounts showed posts on December 13, however the automobile company has not officially confirmed it. Both accounts were spotted to post memes related to the automaker that included a reel which said, “I am taking over now.” The company’s Twitter handle was also changed to ‘DEE’.

So far, no specific organisation or individual has owned or claimed the hack on BMW’s global social media handles. Although, the hack happened a few days ago after Kia India’s social media account was hacked as well. Notably, South Korean technology giant gained back the control of its hacked Instagram account.

Kia India on Wednesday has finally recovered its Instagram account from hackers. The social media account of the automaker was hacked on Tuesday by some unknown cyber attackers where the perpetrators also posted some inappropriate content.

On Tuesday, the hackers had changed the account information and its profile image. However, the South Korean company has taken back the controls of its Instagram account and reinstated the profile image along with the account description.

Those who do not know, the hackers posted a video on Kia India’s Instagram account with a caption that read, “Remember us? #ly #tomy Party time 💀”. This directly indicated that the account of the company was hacked.

Reportedly, the automaker has fallen prey to hackers even back in 2021 as well, when the cyber attackers had demanded an amount of $20 million ransom in order to give the access back.

Meanwhile, Kia has hiked the price of its Carens, its latest three-row MPV in India, from November 2022. This increase in price has been done for the second time in eight months after the car was launched in Feb this year, at an introductory price of 8.99 lakh (ex-showroom). As per the new list, Kia has hiked the price by up to 50,000 depending on its variants.

Most of the Caren’s variants have received a price hike of 30,000. The price of the top-end Diesel 6AT Luxury plus 7 seater variant, which was launched at 16.99 lakh, will now cost 17.99 lakh (ex-showroom).
