Quoting to the Twitter statement, the BBC said, “As soon as we were made aware of the issue, we have locked the compromised accounts and are closely working with our partners at Facebook to restore them.”

Facebook in its statement said, “Some of our corporate social accounts were briefly hacked but we have secured and restored the access.”

Whereas, CNET in its report said, “Hacker used a third-party platform called Khoros to access the account.”
