Barcelona confirm hackers announced Angel di Maria signing on social media

Share

Hacker group "OurMine" has returned to spotlight after exploiting some major vulnerabilities with Football Club (FC) Barcelona's official Twitter account.

It is seemingly hard for Barcelona to sign Di Maria from the French outfit, considering the sour nature in which Brazilian Neymar left - to join PSG.

It was quickly revealed that it had been a hoax, however, and that the security group "OurMine" were behind the tweet. We are working to fix it as soon as possible.

Barca later debunked the signing, explaining that its account was hacked. All three were later deleted when Barcelona's admins regained control of the account.

Yep, that's Our Mine joking that none other than former Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria would be heading to Nou Camp to help replace the void left by Neymar. "Thanks for your patience", the club posted on Wednesday.

OurMine security group is a security hacker group who have earlier hacked celebrity internet accounts to advertise their commercial services.

Just for one hot, sticky moment, it looked like Barcelona had retaliated to PSG's recent hostile pinching of Neymar by snaffling one of their main attacking talents in return.

Barcelona executives were "very upset" about all the posts, according to Spanish media reports, because it made it appear that the players had taken the side of Neymar over the club.
