Jeep's Twitter account latest to be hacked
Hackers that took over Burger King account may be to blame
Jeep's Twitter feed has been hijacked.
The company's account was taken over on Tuesday afternoon by what appeared to be the same hacker -- or hackers -- responsible for Monday's takeover of Burger King's Twitter feed.
The hackers joked on the Twitter feed Tuesday that Jeep had been sold to Cadillac, and posted a series of absurd and obscene messages.
On Monday, the hackers posted a McDonald's logo on Burger King's feed and claimed the chain had been sold to its golden-arched competitor,
Jeep spokesman Todd Goyer said in an email: "We're aware of the issue and are working to resolve it as quickly as possible," .
Twitter did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
As for General Motors-owned Cadillac, the company tweeted "Just to clarify, Cadillac is not connected to the hack of the @Jeep Twitter account."
"First Burger King, now @Jeep has been hacked," Twitter user @johnnyteater wrote Tuesday. "Glad people have so much pointless time on their hands."
