    The K-Pop stars NCT 127’s Twitter account was hacked by the OurMine hackers, who left a rather friendly notification for the group to be careful about their internet security.

    OurMine has already hacked accounts of various celebrities including Mark Zuckerberg, Sundair Pichai (Google CEO), Jack Dorsey (Twitter founder) and John Hanke (Pokemon GO creator). The white hat hackers group usually doesn’t change the account information, breaking in only to remind people to be more careful about their account security and advertise their hacking services.

    Fans were both concerned by and made fun of the hacking, posting their memes and reactions in #NCTHack, joking mostly about how the hacking could be related to the group’s plans to release a new album.
