(WXIA) -- Former Secretary of State Colin Powell is the newest victim of internet hacking. Gen. Powell's Facebook feed was hacked Monday morning, flooding the page and news feeds of fans with insults and profanity.
By noon, a message had been posted noting the hacking:
Dear Friends, as most of you realize, my fb page has obviously been hacked. I'm sorry you have to see all the stupid, obscene posts that are popping up. Please ignore as we are working with fb to take care of this problem. I appreciate your patience.
No one at this point has taken responsibility for the hack.
