Take That, Hackers: Farah Ann Secures Gold Sea Games Medal Amidst Instagram Hack
Our gymnastics maestro Farah Ann is back at it again!
This time, the 23-year-old successfully defended her gold medal for the SEA Games in the floor exercise apparatus event with 13,450 points, beating Philippines’ Kaitlin Cera Lianne DeLa Cruz and Indonesia’s Rifda Irfanaluthfi.
She also led the women artistic team to victory as they triumphed over Singapore and Indonesia yesterday, with a combined score of 200.950 points.
But in the midst of celebrating glory for Malaysia, the talented gymnast continues to solve her Instagram predicament as her account got hacked by unknown perpetrators a few days before her SEA Games events.
She also confirmed the news on her official Twitter account, saying, “My instagram is being hacked . I have no access to it and the hacker is deleting my photos”

It appears that all her photos have indeed been deleted, and there are three new ones uploaded, including one of an anonymous male. Her profile photo has also been changed, displaying a person in a hoodie whose face is concealed.
The hacking of her account occurred the same time Indonesian hackers began targeting Malaysian websites following the Indonesia flag gaffe whereby it was printed upside down for a SEA Games magazine.
We hope she gets the issue resolved soon, but congratulations for making Malaysia proud once again!
