The hacktivist group Anonymous has taken control of 4H and 5H Instagram accounts, and it is the latest in a series of social media hacks targeting the companies.
The hack is also the latest of its kind to hit an Instagram-based brand.
In a series in the past week, hackers have taken over accounts for the company’s sister brands, which include Hackears, Growhars, and Kegarhars.
Anonymous claimed responsibility for both hacks on Tuesday, according to a tweet by the group.
The group said it has taken over the accounts of four other brands: Growharts, Kegars, Hackes, and Hackelers.
4H told Newsweek that the accounts had been hacked by the Anonymous collective.
“We are aware that an external party has breached the accounts, which are now being exploited by an external actor.
Anonymous is not responsible for the content of the content they have taken,” the company said in a statement.
4S’s account was hacked on Sunday.
The company said the hack was an attempt to “influence the growth of the brand.”
4H said in the statement that it is investigating the hack and is working with law enforcement authorities to “establish if and how to share any evidence, including the identity of the hacktivists and/or the source of the information they were able to steal.”
Anonymous also took over the Instagram account of 5H and 6H on Monday.
5H said it is cooperating with law authorities.
It said the account has not been used to target other brands.
4 H also tweeted that it had taken over an Instagram account for 5H.
4h said the hacker took over its accounts for HacKear, Hacskear, and GrowHars.
The accounts were hacked on Monday by the hacking group known as Anonymous.
Anonymous claims to have gained access to the accounts on Friday, but it has not released the names of the hackers or the content that was allegedly stolen.
Anonymous has used its Twitter account to announce hacks on other companies, and on Monday it also took control of a Instagram account associated with a Chinese online retailer.
On Sunday, hackers also managed to gain access to an account belonging to another Chinese online retail company, Huizhou Baoqiang, which is one of the biggest online retailers in China.
The account was used to sell merchandise and other goods for over $4 million, according a Chinese police statement, though it has yet to be independently verified.
The Chinese government has also issued a warning against the cyberattack on Twitter, warning users to “watch out for threats to your personal data.”
Anonymous is believed to be the largest hacking collective active in China, with about 5,000 people active in the country.
4P has also gained access through its Instagram account.
4p claimed responsibility on Twitter for taking over the account of 4P, but Anonymous later disputed that claim.
Anonymous, which claimed responsibility earlier in the week, said it had “taken over the personal accounts of 4h, hackearn, hacskearn and 6h” on Monday, according, a tweet from the group’s Twitter account.
Anonymous said it also has access to 4P’s account for the brand’s sister brand, GrowHarts.
GrowHards said in an Instagram post that the hack is “the latest in the series of hacks targeting brands” and that the “attacks will be carried out again in the future.”
4P did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment.
