CNN’s Facebook accounts were briefly compromised this weekend by hacking collective OurMine, Mashable reports.
The group, now infamous for gaining access to accounts to peacock their security products, hit CNN’s primary, International and Politics pages early morning in South Africa.

This isn’t the first time OurMine has been in the news in the past six months
While the group didn’t post anything incriminating or vile, it did flood the pages with its posters, and its usual message: “Hey, it’s OurMine we are just testing your security, please contact us for more information.”
It seems that the group’s chief motive was publicity.

At the time of writing, both WWE and CNN have regained access and control to their respective accounts.
