OurMine Seizes Popeyes, Burger King Web Sites

Late on May 14 2020 (or early on May 15 2020) Popeyes.com and BurgerKing.com were hacked, replaced with the following message, an email address, and the hashtag #OurMine:

Of the messages on the pages and the group cited, a Wikipedia page described some of the group’s previous efforts and indicated:

OurMine is a hacker group that is known for hacking (popular) accounts and websites, often causing cybervandalism, to advertise their commercial services; this is one of the reasons they are not considered to be a “white hat” group.

As of 12:41 AM Eastern Standard Time, #OurMine messages remained on both BurgerKing.com and Popeyes.com. We will update this page when additional information emerges.
