In past, OurMine has hacked into social accounts of Google CEO Sundar Pichai, Uber founder Travis Kalanick, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek and Pokemon Go creator John Hanke. The hackers collective breach into the accounts of top executives and CEOs from Silicon Valley, so that they can be approached by these account holders for advice over the security. ZDnet reports, the last time OurMine claimed a hack, it was called bluff. Thus an official word from Zuckerberg could only clear the air, if the breach has been made into his social accounts.
