Hackers have been attempting to gain control of Facebook accounts belonging to Eleven Media reporters and Web administrators, according to notifications from the social-media company.

Facebook has informed Eleven Media staff via email that attempts to enter their accounts had been made from unfamiliar locations, citing the hackers’ login IP, country, email address and time zones.

According to notifications from Facebook last week someone attempted to enter the accounts of Eleven Media information technology manager Zaw Ye Naung and executive editor Nay Tun Naing using the email address sn1ff3rg0dbot@gmail.com.

Hackers used IP 203.81.72.87, which belongs to internet service provider Myanmar Posts and Telecommunication (MPT).

Hackers also attempted to enter Eleven Media Web operator Tin Htet Naing’s Gmail account earlier this month as well as the Facebook account of Web operator Naing Naing Htet using the addresskyawblaze@gmail.com. Both hacking attempts used the IP address 203.81.85.30, which belongs to MPT.

MPT and Yatanarpon Teleport can investigate as notifications of the hacking attacks identify the local IPs and time zones used.

Login notifications can be enabled via Facebook’s security settings which will alert account owners by their primary email address every time an attempt is made to enter their Facebook account.

Websites of local media as well as their Facebook accounts and the Gmail accounts of reporters and other media staff have been under attack from hackers since January.
