Hackers took control of over a dozen popular subreddits on Reddit.com and flooded the pages with pro-Trump content on Friday.
According to Business Insider, “a Reddit spokesperson sad in an email that ‘an investigation is underway related to a series of vandalized communities. It appears the source of the attacks were compromised moderator accounts. We are working to lock down those accounts and restore impacted communities.’
The hack comes three weeks after a teenage hacker allegedly gained entry to the Twitter accounts of some of the most powerful people in the world and tried to scam people into sending him Bitcoin.
