Roblox Gaming users’ Cyber Attacked by Trump 2020 Election Campaign

208

A group of hackers posing as the representatives of the company assigned with the task of promoting the Trump 2020 Election Campaign have been fraudulently targeting the users of Roblox Game by urging them to vote for US President Donald Trump in the US 2020 Polls.

 

As per the details available to our Cybersecurity Insiders, nearly 1,200 Roblox accounts were fraudulently intercepted by a hacking group who were flooding the popular children’s gaming platform with the propaganda filled with an Avatar wearing MAGA signs and urging the parents of the kids to “Vote for Trump this year !#MAGA 2020”.

 

Technically speaking, the message is being posted in the “About” field of the main profile page related to the player replacing the original biography. And information is out that players residing in Britain are also getting the messages- even if they do not have a voting right in the United States.

 

It all began in June this year after the hackers succeeded in compromising over 500 accounts on an initial note and within a span of 7 days the number of compromised accounts doubled to twelve hundred+.

 

A reaction from the Roblox Corporation on the incident is awaited!

 

Note- Roblox is an open gaming platform where users are allowed to create their own games with avatars of their choice and are allowed to play the game with others. The platform has so far garnered the attention of around 100 million players around the world and is available on iOS and Android devices along with the regular Windows, Max, and Xbox one loaded machines.
