Justin Bieber was hacked on Twitter on Saturday.

The pop star’s 50.2 million followers suddenly saw several strange messages reading, “Justin Bieber Cemberut?” with a link to an app for something called ShootingStarPro (see below).

For what it’s worth, “cemberut” is an Indonesian word meaning “sullen.”

Bieber’s camp quickly responded to the hacking, worried about both the security breach and the potential for viruses spreading via the links.

The pop star tweeted and then erased a message reading, “That link from earlier. Don’t click it. Virus. Going to erase this now. Spread the word. Thanks.”

Shortly thereafter, Bieber wrote, “All good now. We handled it.”

During the chaos, both “Justin Bieber Cemberut” and “#JustinsPasswordIsProbably” trended across the United States.
