Hackers took over the official twitter account of Southeastern Conference (SEC) and posted a couple of images of scantily clad women on Saturday (June 25) morning.

SEC is an American college athletic conference whose member institutions are located primarily in the Southern part of the United States.

While its micro blogging site’s handle was hacked, a social media nightmare became a reality.

One tweet showed a woman dressed in a bra and underwear with the following message: “Hey! Dear, do you want to see me naked boobs? Meet me here,” followed by a link. Another showed a photo of a scantily clad woman apparently rummaging around under a desk with the message, “Hi! Sugar, do you want to watch my private videos? go on,” followed by another link.

SEC spokesman Herb Vincent said in a statement, "We became aware of it when we saw some retweets."

The company removed the images, changed the password and notified Twitter about the incident as soon as breach was known.

The tweets, which were sent out to the account has 325,000 followers.

Soon after the posts were deleted, Commissioner Greg Sankey apologized for the posts which were the result of a hack.


SEC isn’t alone with its social media issues. Earlier this month, the National Football League's twitter account was hacked with three unauthorized messages appearing in the league's timeline, including a statement that Commissioner Roger Goodell had died who was in fact alive.
