Hacked Accounts And IDs Of “Produce X 101” Reportedly Sold In China For Illegal Voting
On May 16, the news desk of MBC News reported that hacked accounts of Mnet “Produce X 101” were sold to fans to vote for their favorite trainees in China illegally.
Since the voting for “Produce X 101” is only available for those who reside in Korea, it seems like some fans had taken it to the next level by using illegal methods to vote.
According to the reported news, it was said that one hacked account is selling at 50 Yuan that is equivalent to about 8,600 won or USD 7. Although it is unsure if the accounts were being misused or hacked, the officials are highly suspecting that the accounts were hacked by third party.
In addition, pages selling these accounts were requested to be taken down but many noticed that there are still many sellers putting their offers up.
Currently, there is no official statement from Mnet regarding the issue.
What do you think about this situation?
