Of Course, You Know, This Means A Burger War
- When Hack Happened: Feb. 2013
- Who Did It: Unknown
While some of the funniest hacker attacks tend to happen on social media, you assume they’ll be a lot like the Britney Spears situation we referred to earlier. But this hacker just wanted to watch the world burn. They managed to hack into Burger King’s official Twitter handle in February 2013. The hacker could have done anything at this point. Perhaps, they could tweet out racial material, post horrible images, you name it.
Instead, they chose to simply troll the King. They posted several messages that claimed Burger King had been sold to one of their biggest fast-food rivals, McDonald’s. Due to this, they went all in and changed the name of their handle and even added the infamous golden arches of McDonald’s as their new profile image. Of course, the web team managed to get back into the account to remove all of this. Yet the one who hacked in is still at large, causing fast-food chaos wherever they may go.
