On December 8, 2015, veteran Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir’s Twitter account was hacked and used to leak screenshots of his personal emails and bank account information. The hacker, who is apparently pro-ISI (Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence) focused on Mir’s anti-ISIS correspondence and also joked about India’s minister of external affairs, who is in Pakistan to discuss bilateral ties.

The above image shows one of the tweets from the hacked account, featuring a fake “apology” to ISI.
