Hackers sent fake tweets saying Britney Spears has died


The fake tweets were soon removed. In some tweets, the group OurMine took responsibility. OurMine is the same entity that took credit for hacking the Netflix and Marvel Twitter accounts last week. The Twitter account of folk music icon Bob Dylan may also have been subjected to a hoax. The message said  “Rest in peace @britneyspears.” Sony Music, a unit of Sony Corp., said in a short statement that its social media account was “compromised” but that the situation “has been rectified.” They also apologized to and her fans. Spears herself has not commented. Another unit of Sony, Sony Pictures Entertainment, was the victim of a devastating cyber attack in November 2014.
