UPDATE: The Black Panther, Iron Man, Thor, Ant-Man, Doctor Strange, Captian America and Marvel Music have also been hacked.
A second tweet has gone out from these attacks, inviting followers to upgrade their security at an OurMine website.
The attack also targeted Netflix, taking over the streaming service's main account. The only Netflix TV show accounts that seem to have been affected are the Marvel Television ones.
It appears that Marvel's Twitter accounts have fallen prey to a cyber attack.
Today, several of Marvel's twitter accounts, including the main Marvel Entertainment account, the Marvel's Daredevil account, Marvel's Jessica Jones account, Marvel's Luke Cage account, the Guardians of the Galaxy account, and The Avengers account each tweeted out a simultaneous message from the OurMine Security Group, a hacker collective.
The Tweets read, "Hey, it's OurMine, Don't worry we are just testing your security," and then list an email address for followers to contact the group, as seen below:
Adri Cowan, Marvel's Senior Manager of social media, also tweeted out the same message, indicated that she was also a victim of the hack.
