Hackers deface Roblox accounts with pro-Trump messages

Roblox has over 100 million registered users but only a handful of accounts were compromised.

As the US presidential election is nearby, voters across the 50 state empire are betting on their candidates in light of the proposals they offer. However, some are going far enough to take action themselves and actively persuade others.

Such was seen recently when it was discovered that Trump’s supporters hacked Roblox accounts which happened to be a popular gaming platform with 100 million users. The hack attack allowed hackers to display pro-Trump messages.

This was done through brute-force techniques exploiting the weak passwords of users. Currently, approximately 1,150 accounts are believed to be affected by this as revealed by a Google Dorks search.

Primarily aimed at children from the 9-14-year-old age group; the platform itself allows users to have profiles along with the option of customizing their avatars with different options such as custom skins, t-shirts, and hats.

Targeting this, the attackers displayed a message within the about section of the profiles stating “Ask your parents to vote for Trump this year! #MAGA2020.”
