Linda Frum's conservative Senate Twitter account was hacked Sunday night, along with those who share personal information, including drivers using the slurs license and their tweets.

"Hi! Well, can not you please merchandise with us?" Read a tweet

After Tweet, he shared a driver's front license and a back image, including personal information, including his address.

The reason for the hacking was not clearly seen, but the authors tweeted that "they do not surprise politicians," and they were included in the ignorant of the Palestinians.

The hacker-linked account group and the "spank group" are referred to as "Twitter Run".

Hacking is a day after a high-profile Hacking incident in Germany, where several politicians and officials – including German Chancellor Angela Merkel – personal data have disappeared online.

Frum is not the first Hacker's senator.

The Conservative Senate Don Plett had hacked his Twitter account at the end of October, though hackers took a more demanding approach. While they did not share personal details, Nicki Minaj shared women's and female's rap artist's Cardi B, and she turned her picture into a bigger and tattooed boy.

The problems of Plett were quickly resolved and the control of his damage took the form of a sharp tweet.

High profile hacking incidents have led to concerns among politicians and election leaders.

The government introduced bill C-76 to modernize the electoral laws to address these concerns. The law creates a new crime against computer interference to slow down the efforts of hackers in other countries in order to interfere with the electoral process.

However, election officials Stephane Perrault and Yves Cote, the election commissioner, both warned that the new offense would not hurt the hackers' efforts. It is necessary to prove the evidence that the bills have to influence the election results.

This means that hackers trying to create a mess will not have a new bill.

The Communications Security Establishment, a spy agency, has also launched a new cybersecurity center in response to increasing cyber threats. The aim of the organization is to "take a first step, in a coordinated and effective way to respond to cybercaptic threats."
