New Mexico Newspaper's Twitter Account Hacked
Federal authorities are investigating a cyberattack on the Albuquerque Journal.
The newspaper's Twitter account was hijacked Tuesday morning. Someone replaced the profile picture with an image that expressed support for Islamic militants.
Numerous posts followed, including photos of driver's licenses belonging to New Mexico residents, inmate profiles and warnings to residents that their confidential information was at risk.
By midday, the newspaper's account was restored.
