KTR, Telangana IT Minister, has been active on Twitter from his handle @KTRTRS. His office runs @MinisterKTR handle and posts his official tour and meeting updates on social media platform. KTR from his account is known for responding to public enquiries, petitions and problems. His office handle makes official statements about the new IT developments in the state. KTR takes on BJP, opposition parties on his personal account and doesn’t use office handle to give his frustration words.
Some anonymous group, who called themselves Cool Cats, have hacked @MinisterKTR, the official id of KTR. They have posted some funny messages and promoted NFTs on the twitter feed. The group seemed to have done it not out of spite but for some kick. KTR office did not release any official statement regarding the issue and they have recovered the account in hours time.
This incident can wake up some of her cyber cells to really build up the security shields better on social media. Today, it is Minister KTR office handle and tomorrow, it can be any celebrity or minister’s handle. Cyber security cannot be taken lightly and this incident shows us, why! Please maintain cyber hygiene and do not click on phishing mails or messages from unknown numbers to avoid such hacking hazards. We hope KTR office will soon make an official statement.
