NBC's Twitter account was hacked by Script Kiddies, falsely reporting that a plain crashed on ground zero in New York.

Hacker group – Script Kiddies – attacked the Twitter account of the NBC News, falsely reporting that an airliner crashed down into the Ground Zero in New York. The said group nfiltrated NBC’s Twitter account on Friday evening with the first message showing up on Twitter at 5:48pm.

After NBC requested Twitter to temporarily shut down its account, chief digital officer – Vivian Schiller – released a statement regarding the said incident on her Twitter account.┬áShe tweeted on Sunday morning that the NBC News Twitter account is back in their control.

Script Kiddies is the same group who hacked Fox News’ account early on the morning of July 4, and released a false report that President Obama was assassinated. The group is currently under investigation by the FBI, as NBC News reported on its Today news website on Saturday morning.

Talking on how the hackers gained access to NBC Twitter account, the network admitted that one of their employee clicked a malicious email attachment that might have allowed the Script Kiddies to get their password — which is only in the hands of the company’s three executives.
