After #SuchiLeaks, Malayalam actor Madonna Sebastian's social media accounts hacked
Cyber crime seems to be in full force in the South Indian film industry.
A few days ago, the controversial #SuchiLeaks saw Tamil singer and radio jocket Suchitra Karthik Kumar's Twitter account apparently get hacked and leak intimate pictures of actor Dhanush with his co-stars Trisha and Hansika Motwani.
In fact, Trisha's social media account has also been hacked in the recent past.
Now, Malayalam actor Madonna Sebastian also found her Facebook account leaked. While she managed to retrieve it, she discovered that a hacker has been masquerading as her on Twitter, where she does not have an account.
The actor took to Facebook to post a message informing her friends, fans and followers that her account had been hacked. She adds that until she says otherwise on her verified Facebook account, any tweet that has been doing the rounds under her name has not been issued by her.
"There seems to be certain people somewhere, who are taking advantage of the fact that I do not have a Twitter account and posting false news in my name.. Let's choose to ignore them... Also the accounts in my name, till I announce that I have created one new account on Twitter here on Facebook.. Have a great evening everyone!," Sebastian said, as reported by DNA.
There was a lot of confusion regarding Suchitra Karthik's tweets recently. While she claimed that her account was hacked, her tweets prior to that assumed the same tone as the ones after the hack. Dhanush's sister even went on to say that Karthik was doing so in order to "take revenge", the RJ maintained that her account was hacked.
Irrespective of the truth, Sebastian did a wise move to issue an immediate clarification about her leaked account and not leave anything to speculation and conjecture.
