DC Metropolitan Authority social media hacked

Attacks

DC Metropolitan Authority operates transit service in the Washington metropolitan area.

Early Monday between 3:30am to 3:45am a series of odd and obscene tweets were posted on the Twitter account belonging to the DC Metro Authority. Normally the DC Metro Authority’s account posts information about the capital area’s metro systems.

Once the hack happened the unsolicited tweets started pouring out distasteful and odd messages. The hacker also changed the DC Metro authorities Twitter account to “Blueface Da Bus”. Blueface the rapper is not a suspect.

Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority was able to secure the Twitter account and remove most of the post a few hours after the attack occured.
