The past week has seen the rise of an online hackers group which goes by the name Legion. With the accounts of four well-known personalities and one political party – Indian National Congress (INC) and Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, business tycoon Vijay Mallya, NDTV journalists Barkha Dutt and Ravish Kumar – hacked, the group has been sharing a fair amount of abusive tweets on Twitter-verse, along with personal account details.

While Gandhi’s and INC’s Twitter hack mostly consisted of offensive tweets with no information being shared, Mallya’s account wherein information about the cars he owned, passwords for his online accounts, his emails were ‘dumped’ on a particular website and the link put on his Twitter for everyone to access. The next victim was NDTV journalist Barkha Dutt, whose Twitter account also gave away personal IDs and passwords and email dumps. This was soon followed by another NDTV journalist Ravish Kumar’s Twitter being hacked.

The tweets by the group on these accounts have all been deleted and the accounts restored, Twitterati have responded to the hacking of the accounts in interesting ways – mostly by telling them why not to hack into their accounts, while others would like their accounts to be hacked in order to gain popularity. On the other hand, they’ve also taken to suggesting which other accounts the group should hack, Legion’s own reaction to the hacked emails and their reason for doing so – all with a generous dose of the tweeple brand of humour.

    I've been duped a lot when it comes to hiring the services of a hacker but I finally met Cyberhackgenius at hotmail dot com. I read many blogs about Cyberhackgenius hotmail and I decided to verify if they are legit or not. My cousin also told me he helped her hack into a . It turns out they are and really affordable. I contacted Cyberhackgenius at hotmail dot com or text here 1(916) 6742172 and he hacked my wife's phone and social accounts at a very affordable cost.
