British army social media accounts advertised NFT scams
Several accounts of the British Army were hacked for a short time last weekend. Intruders logged into the British Army's Twitter and YouTube accounts to advertise fraudulent cryptocurrency, the British Ministry of Defense confirms.

It is not known how the hackers gained access to the two accounts. "We apologize for the temporary disruption to our feeds," the army said on Twitter. "We are investigating the matter and will learn lessons from this incident."

After hackers took over the accounts, profile pictures and profile texts were modified, among other things. On Twitter, among other things, posts were shared about NFTS, and on YouTube videos were posted about cryptocurrency.

Exactly how long the hack lasted is unknown. On Sunday evening, the accounts were restored and the British army regained access.
