Don't Worry, Britney Spears Is 'Alive And Well'

Britney Spears is alive and well'.

The Sony Music Global and Bob Dylan Twitter accounts were hacked Monday morning, both stating that Spears had died. A follow-up tweet read, "RIP @britneyspears #RIPBritney 1981-2016".

The OurMine hacker group has been targeting a lot of high profile accounts throughout this year including Marvel's Twitter accounts and the twitter account of Netflix on the same day last week. Though, OurMine has rejected the notion, saying the official Sony Music Entertainment account had been compromised by someone else and had posted tweets about Spears' death.

"I haven't spoken to anyone.as of yet but I am certain their account was hacked", Leber told CNN.

The false tweets from Sony's account may be connected to OurMine, a group that claims its goal it simply to point out cyber insecurity. "Britney is fine and well", he assured the star's fans, noting that this was a first, even for her.

News.com also reported on the hoax saying that Our Mine Security, who claimed responsibility for the joke, said that "We detected usual activity on the account and we checked the account if it's hacked or not".

Sony is well aware of the damage a hacked account can cause, especially when it impacts an entire service such as the PlayStation Network.

Sony Music Global also sent out a Tweet indicating that they found an unfamiliar IP, which logged into their account, CBS News reports.

However, the music company later confirmed that the mum-of-two is alive and well and that they'd been hacked.

Spears "rose" from her scary death news when she posted a selfie on her social media accounts. One tweet from Dylan's account included the OurMine hashtag. The record additionally distributed a screengrab of the IP login data to facilitate the point that it was hacked before erasing all the late messages posted on Monday.
