OurMine, a hacking group that claims to offer social media users security, hacked Facebook’s Twitter and Instagram accounts, as well as Messenger’s accounts, on Friday. On its website, OurMine describes its team as being “known for many hacks showing vulnerabilities in major systems.”
"Hi, we are O u r M i n e. Well, even Facebook is hackable but at least their security better than Twitter. to improve your accounts security Contact us: [email protected] u r m i n e .org For security services visit: o u r m i n e. org," the tweet said, according to a screenshot circulated online.

In addition to the tweet, OurMine posted its logo multiple times on both Facebook and Messenger’s Instagram accounts.
The tweet has since been deleted, as were the posts on both Facebook and Messenger’s Instagram accounts.  Facebook responded to the hacking on Twitter writing, “Some of our corporate social accounts were briefly hacked but we have secured and restored access.”

"As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we locked the compromised accounts and are working closely with our partners at Facebook to restore them," Twitter said in a statement, the BBC reported.
According to Business Insider, Facebook was able to delete OurMine’s tweet, which was posted “at least” five times, and the hacking incident ended after 30 minutes.
Facebook confirmed to Reuters that some of its accounts were hacked. “Some of our corporate social accounts were briefly hacked but we have secured and restored access,” Facebook spokesman Joe Osborne told Reuters.
In January, OurMine hacked 15National Football League teams’ accounts, according to Business Insider. The hacking group has also taken over the accounts of Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
