Crazzy Steve should look at two-factor authentication. The Impact Wrestling star has had his Twitter hacked for the second time in a week. Steve had just regained control of his account again.

This is the latest in a string of Twitter hacks against wrestlers. A simple click would allow two-factor authentication, making hacks impossible without access to the phone registered to the account. Unfortunately, nobody seems to be telling wrestlers about this feature.

Crazzy Steve has over 40,000 followers on Twitter. The latest hack sent those same 40,000 people tons of spam about an obscure cryptocurrency. Other popular wrestling hacking tactics include offering wrestlers shoes in a fishing scheme to get their password as well as using hacked accounts to sell fake PlayStation consoles.

The hacker spam tagged hundreds of accounts with no message. Clicking on Crazzy Steve’s profile leads to a pinned tweet with an link to a crypto site that undoubtedly is filled with malware. Anyone who sees the tweet should be advised not to click on it.

The unfortunate problems wrestlers have had on social media are well-documented. Sammy Guevara recently had his account compromised. Lance Archer has been a victim as well. Madman Fulton of Impact fame also suffered a recent hack.

Any wrestler hoping to avoid the trouble of having to get control of their account back after a hack should be taking preventative measures. Turning on two-factor authentication and not clicking links from unknown sources would be a great start. Hopefully, this trend of hacks will inspire some to take additional precautions in the future.
