On September 22, Sunday, fans noticed that the Hanggang Sa Dulo Ng Buhay Ko star's Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter accounts started displaying unusual posts. Kris took to the Facebook page of her makeup brand, SHE Cosmetics, to let her fans know about the cyber-attack.
Yesterday, Kris was able to post again on her Instagram account, to announce that her accounts have been restored.
"Good news to everyone that I finally got back my Instagram account after three tedious attempts," said Kris, revealing that the hackers would attack between 2 to 6 a.m. when she is sleeping.
She also talked about the experience on her YouTube channel, where she got super emotional and broke into tears, sharing how saddened she is because she worked so hard to achieve her following. She shared how the hackers are from Turkey and how they would call her on Whatsapp and ask for money to restore her account.
"The vlog I posted was as real and raw as it is, as I became so emotional thinking about the consequences of the situation," she said.
Today, Kris posted another IG update to thank not just GMA and her celebrity friends, but also her fans who even directly messaged the hackers to confront them and to defend her, even if she had advised them several times to refrain from doing so.
"There are people who messaged the hacker even if it's risking danger upon them as well; random people who were also willing to pay the hacker," Kris said.
"There will be no chance I can get what I have lost. Because of this incident, I did realize how important and appreciated I am to some people. I go by my day every day not seeing how I truly matter to the people around me. And I am really grateful for all of this support."
