Another celebrity victimised in hack but this doesn’t stop the business of the day for Sally Boss Madam!
You can’t keep a good woman down. That is the attitude we have always gotten from Boss Madam and this new year is no exception. The Lucky Girl album maker this past weekend had her Instagram account that had over 200 000 followers hacked and deleted, leaving her with no access to it. Sally, however, without wasting time has since created a new account where her followers can reach and keep in touch with her.
With the new account that is growing at a fast pace, the award-winning musician said posted a picture with the caption that read:
To new beginnings, indicating her readiness for the new year and its trials and tribulations.
Sally Boss Madam is not the first Namibian celebrity to have had her account hacked. Last year, personalities including Robyn Nakaambo have been hacked, with hackers demanding for money and nude photos.
The victimisation of celebrities through hacks has been trending lately with entertainers from all over the world losing access to their social media pages. Experts have warned social media users to ensure that they constantly change their login credentials and to make sure that they are not easy to presume as this will make it hard for hackers.
An online magazine wrote that the infosec community has been beating the drum for a long time about what you can do to secure your online accounts, and it starts with a strong, unique password that is as long as the service supports.
Tools like password managers can help generate the right string, allowing you to include special characters, numbers, as well as upper and lower case letters. They also allow you to use these complex password without the need to remember them.
This way, an attacker cannot log in using just the account credentials, they should also have access to your device, which makes their job a lot harder.
