Disneyland's Instagram hacked to display racist and homophobic slurs

Disney said it didn't know how a malicious hacker accessed the official Instagram account.

The account was hacked by someone calling themself "David DO." He managed to post four separate photos on Disneyland's account.

"These posts were filled with profanity and racist/homophobic slurs and seemed to be challenging someone named Jerome along with Disney employees," Disney said in a blog post.

Malicious hacker also tagged several other Instagram accounts, but it is yet unknown whether they could lead police to the identification of the threat actor.

Disney discovered the hack and erased posts within a couple of hours.

"We worked quickly to remove the reprehensible content, secure our accounts, and our security teams are conducting an investigation," a Disneyland spokesperson said.
