We at Disney Fanatic recently shared the news that the Disneyland Resort’s social media was hacked in the early morning of Thursday, July 7, but the posts were removed before we could gain more species on the story, especially who was responsible. Now we know. We also know now that the Disneyland Resort account was temporarily taken down and reemerged with none of the hacker’s posts.
Original Story: HACKED: Disneyland Social Media Compromised for Almost an Hour
The Disneyland Resort’s official Instagram account has over 8 million followers, and it is unclear just how many were exposed to these posts. We will continue to monitor this story specifically for further details.
Disneyland still has yet to release any statement or comment on the matter. Once again, other Disney Parks’ social media accounts, as well as the official Disneyland Resort website, remained untouched by this hacking incident.
We at Disney Fanatic will continue to update our readers on Disney Parks news and stories as more developments come to light.
