The official Instagram account of the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) was hacked, altering content and information. The profile picture was defaced with an image of camels, the biography written in Arabic script, and contains two video posts. It’s also following only seven Arabic accounts.
In a Twitter statement from the Phil News Agency, PCOO Asec. JV Arcena said: “We decry the malicious act by unknown individuals who hacked the Presidential Communications Operations Office’s Instagram page, with the handle @pcoogov. The account has been locked by Facebook’s team so that hackers will no longer be able to use the account. In the meantime, we ask our followers to disregard any present and future activities on our Instagram page, until such a time that the matter is resolved.”
