The SEC is really good at football. It's not great at making strong passwords for their social media accounts, evidently. This morning, the conference's official Twitter account was hacked, and tweeted out two very 'not safe for work' images to its 324,000 followers.

The conference put out a statement about the hack shortly after the tweets were pulled.

Whoops! The account quickly deleted the photos, but Twitter being what it is, many other users took screengrabs, and the damage was done. Expect plenty of jokes this morning.
