Group Hacks Netflix’s Twitter to Post That ‘World Security Is Sh*t’
Today, the Twitter account for Netflix’s American version was hacked by a group called OurMine.
According to Reuters, they posted messages like, “World security is shit. We are here to prove this :),” though some of the missives were deleted in under 10 minutes.

Netflix’s customer service account has responded to questions about the hack, saying they’re aware of it.
@deceptacon16 We’re aware of the situation and are working to get it resolved as quickly as possible. *SC

This is the sort of thing OurMine does best. In the past, they’ve hacked Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg, and outlets like Forbes and TechCrunch. Buzzfeed got hacked by them just a few months ago.
Maybe Netflix should have claimed a hack when they sent out those really unsettling tweets last week.
