The OurMine hacking team also claimed that it was “testing [Hanke’s] security” and offered its services to “upgrade” his security.
Judging by a subsequent tweet that claimed his Twitter password was something very simple and obvious. So the upgrade would involve little more than choosing a better password and maybe turning on two-factor authentication.
OurMine last month claimed to be behind outages on the Pokémon Go network. Although it is hard to verify that claim. Because it may be the Niantic’s servers’ overwhelming by high levels of demand from real people.
