Dash Core CEO Ryan Taylor's social media accounts, including Twitter and LinkedIn, were hacked yesterday. Taylor confirmed in a statement:
"It has come to my attention that I have been the target of cybercriminals at sometime this afternoon (Wednesday, 5/9). At the moment, my Twitter account, LinkedIn account, and personal cell phone SIM card have been compromised. However, we're still evaluating the extent of the attack, as additional channels could be compromised. I will continue to share details as they are surfaced."
While out of his control, Taylor's Twitter account was used to share misinformation about Dash as well as racist comments. Since then, Taylor confirmed in a Tweet and through the Dash Twitter page that he had regained control of his accounts.
"My Twitter account was obviously compromised today. The account is now back under my control and will verify that through the @dashpay account."
