The UK Ministry of Defence has confirmed that the British Army’s Twitter and YouTube accounts were hacked and used to spread scams.

Hackers changed the organisation’s profile picture, bio, and cover photo on Twitter to make it appear as though it was part of The Possessed NFT collection.

On YouTube, hackers deleted all of the videos on the British Army’s channel and changed its name and profile picture to look like the (real) investment company Ark Invest. Hackers replaced the British Army’s videos with a series of old live streams featuring former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

The Army has regained control of the accounts.
