Just a day after the Burger King Twitter account hacking incident, Jeep has seemed to suffer the same fate.  Jeep’s hacked Twitter account says it has been bought out buy Cadillac.

Jeep’s Twitter account briefly features a brand new Cadillac ATS, and the tweets have been pouring out praising Cadillac in the same coarse seen on Burger King’s Twitter Account.

The Detroit Bureau pointed out the irony that Jeep, only a few minutes before the attack, tweeted about online security, specifically addressing the attack on Burger King’s Twitter account.

The fact that two high-profile accounts could be hacked in such a short period of time only goes to show that hackers have some reliable way to execute the attacks.  Twitter has no respond to the incidents only saying, “We don’t comment on individual accounts.”  Jeep did, however, tell NBC News that, “We’re aware of the issue and are working to resolve it as quickly as possible.”  Jeep’s Twitter account has been reverted back to its original appearance.

The reason for the attacks is still unknown; however, both Cadillac and McDonalds deny any involvement in the attacks.
