Fans of popular Filipino star Maine Mendoza (Yaya Dub) got into a frenzy after her e-mail and social media accounts, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, were pulled down by hackers.
Maine Mendoza, who is known for her role in reality drama parody of noon-time variety show Eat Bulaga's Kalye Serye and her relationship with another popular television star with Alden Richards, was left helpless a few days after her social media accounts were hacked.
Anonymous Phillipines, who claimed responsibility for the hack, has apologised to Aldub fans for hacking Yaya Dub's Twitter account after they voiced a strong protest for the intrusion into the privacy of their favourite star.
"Dear fans of Aldub, we sincerely apologize for the recent intrusion of your beloved Idol's Twitter account. You can rest assure that we don't have any malicious intent towards the said individual or any programs pertaining to that person. We just wanted to send a message to the public, and using Maine's account is one of the easiest way we could find," wrote the hackers on its Facebook page, promising to give back access to the owner.
The good news is Yaya Dub has got back her social media accounts except her email.
Instagram's fine, Twitter's back, Facebook
deactivated (by hackers), email still inaccessible #fyi
