In this era of technology, everyone needs to be very keen and ensure maximum security on anything related to the dot com world. It makes it easy for hackers to access your data if you accept to be tricked by them.
This incident is reported to have happened to Bulange, Mengo – based Tv station Bbs Terefayina. According to insiders, the company lost access to its Facebook page after an anonymous hacker entered its system and moved away with almost 800000 followers.
Many of its followers were left stranded on Sunday morning when the hacker took over the administrative rights of their page. An undisclosed employee at Masengere, revealed that “the technical team is working on the issue to have their access back to them, however, it’s a long journey”.
This issue of losing access to social media handles hasn’t started with Bbs Terefayina, different celebrities in Uganda have been crying on the same issues including, Chosen Becky, Fik Fameica, Pallaso, etc.
These pages can only be hacked when someone tricks the handler by sending them fake links, with captions like ” Click here to get 10000 US dollars” or you receive a message on Whatsapp requesting you access to the page for advertising purposes, and once you log in your credentials, your page is gone completely.
