The British Army has confirmed a “breach” of its Twitter and YouTube accounts.

An investigation is under way after both official sites appeared to have been hacked.

The Army’s YouTube channel features videos on cyptocurrency and images of billionaire businessman Elon Musk.

The official Twitter account has retweeted a number of posts appearing to relate to NFTs.

NFT stands for non-fungible token. An NFT is a distinct cryptographic token that cannot be replicated, which acts as a certificate of ownership for virtual items.

An Army spokesperson said: “We are aware of a breach of the Army’s Twitter and YouTube accounts and an investigation is under way.

“We take information security extremely seriously and are resolving the issue. Until the investigation is complete it would be inappropriate to comment further.”
