Actress Eva Longoria is the latest star to have a page compromised by a hacker.

The former Desperate Housewives star became alarmed after spotting a series of strange messages popping up on her social networking account on Thursday (18Oct12).

She asked her followers, "Is anyone else's Twitter bugging out? There are things in my timeline I didn't retweet today. Hmmm? Standby, trying to fix!"

Her fans suggested she may have been the victim of a hacker, and she replied, "I think so!... I knew it!" before looking into changing her log-in details.

Rockers Garbage, Rita Ora and Kristen Bell have also been targeted by internet pranksters in recent weeks.
