After Amitabh Bachchan, Adnan Sami's Twitter hacked by same group
Hours after Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan's Twitter account was hacked, singer Adnan Sami also became a target of the same hacking group on Tuesday.
Ayyildiz Tim, which claims to be a Turkish hacker group, changed the display picture, Twitter bio and cover photo of Adnan's Twitter account and posted a few pro-Pakistan tweets.
Here are more details about the cyber attack.
Hackers replaced Adnan's picture with Pakistan PM Imran Khan's
The hackers replaced Adnan's display picture with that of Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan's and changed the Twitter bio to "Ayyildiz Tim Love Pakistan."
Earlier, the hackers had even pinned a tweet to the profile, reading, "Whoever shows the courage to betrayal our brother country Pakistan know that you will see Pakistan's prime ministers photo and Pakistan flag as profile picture. Ayyildiz tim @ImranKhanPTI."

Pro-Pakistani tweets have since been deleted
Ever since the hack on Tuesday evening, it seems efforts are on to regain control of Adnan's Twitter handle as the offensive tweets have been deleted. However, the display picture, Twitter bio, and the cover photo remain unchanged, at the time of press.
Adnan also confirmed that his account has been hacked on Facebook. He wrote, "Ok. My Twitter account has been hacked!"
Here is Adnan's Facebook post confirming the hack
We speak softly but carry a big stick: Hackers
On Monday, Amitabh's Twitter was hacked by Ayyildiz Tim in a similar manner.
The hackers posted a tweet saying, "This is an important call to the whole world! We do condemn the irrespective behaviors of Iceland republic towards Turkish footballers. We speak softly but carry a big stick and inform you about the big Cyber attack here. As Ayyıldız Tim Turkish Cyber Armny +++"
Big B's account has since been restored
"The Indian State, who mercilessly attacks the Muslims fasting in the month of Ramadan, is attacking the Ummah Muhammad in this age! Indian Muslims are entrusted to us by Abdulhamid," read another tweet on Amitabh's Twitter profile, which has since been restored.
