Bank details of Bernard Matthews employees stolen

A suspected cyber-attack "potentially compromised" the bank account details of 200 workers at Bernard Matthews.

The turkey producer has made staff aware of the suspected hack.

The Norfolk-based company said it was alerted by its bank on 22 January, as first reported in the EDP.

A spokesman said: “After being first alerted by our bank, we reported the incident to the relevant authorities and put in place extra security measures, as well as offering additional security advice to those affected.” "We continue to monitor the situation but we are not aware colleagues have been affected any further," he added.

The person or group behind the hack is unknown.

Bernard Matthews employs 3,000 people across East Anglia. The company is a major employer in Norfolk and Suffolk, including at its plant at Holton, near Halesworth, and its headquarters at Great Witchingham.
The business has been through a difficult time in recent years, coming close to collapse in 2013.

Last year, it was one of two interested parties bidding to take over Banham Poultry, in Attleborough, which was eventually sold to Chesterfield Poultry.

In 2016 the Boparan Private Office, owned by food tycoon and 2 Sisters Food Group entrepreneur Ranjit Boparan, known as the “Chicken King”, bought the firm in a pre-pack deal in 2016 from Rutland Partners, saving 2,000 jobs after the firm posted pre-tax losses of £5.2m.

Twitter Account Of Actress Stefanie Scott for sale in UnderGround hacking forum

A recent post on an underground hacking forum claimed to sell the Twitter account of the actress "Stefanie Scott" . This is one of the rare time's the attack can be prevented before it happens so I am releasing this  post in public interest.And to show how such celebrity accounts are sold by hackers.

Now lets analyze the post . First I am worried by his statement of "pm me for her twitter ETC" which point's that he is in control of MORE than her twitter account. And she seems oblivious to the fact that her account's might be hijacked because she tweeted about an hour ago and the sales thread has been opened way before that .

As you can see such accounts can go for 400$ or more .The account has 256,211 followers which is worth a lot.Most such hacks don't affect the celebrities as much as the followers whose computers or accounts might be hijacked as the result of following the links posted by a hacker posing as the celebrity. 

It is the responsibility of the celebrity to keep his/her account safe as they are not the only people affected, their fans often take the worst side of the attack.

PS: This might just be a scam by the user to rip off  other users but it seems unlikely since he is a higher level of user and would not like "scam reports" to be opened against him.I will update this article if I get more information.
