The Colombia office of the US government agency that oversees foreign aid and development funds reported that its Facebook page had been hacked.

The Colombia office of the US government agency that controls foreign aid and development funds announced that its Facebook page had been hacked and warned the public to disregard any messages or links from the account.

The US Agency for International Development and the US Embassy in Bogota stated in a statement issued Saturday that staff members “identified an unauthorized access, resulting in a potential risk.”

The announcement did not specify the risk or whether the hack included ransomware.

The Facebook page of USAID’s Colombia program flashed the statement, “This content isn’t available right now.”

“We urge all Facebook users and the general public to exercise caution and ignore any posts or links that originate from the compromised USAID Colombia Facebook account,” according to a statement released by the agency. “Our team is actively working to restore account security and investigate the extent of the breach.”
