Hi there, I hope you are fine and taking care of your health in this pandemic situation. Guys, social media has always been a point of attraction to influence people or reach out to a large audience. And Twitter is one of them. Which is supposed to be one of the most official platforms. Where celebrities, politicians, or famous industrialists can provide information or interact with common users. In such a scenario when most of the famous personalities have trust on twitter then twitter authorities should be more concerned about its security. In recent times, I came across one more hacking incident. Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates’s Twitter got hacked and asked Bitcoins
Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates’s Twitter got hacked and asked Bitcoins
I am an all-time fan of Alon Musk and his dedication to the work. So I try to be in touch with him during all the research work. Today morning I got a notification about his tweet. What I see that he has tweeted asking for the money in Bitcoin and promising the sender to send it them doubled. Then I go through some more posts and found the same post from bill gates and Jeff Bezos and from some more famous celebrities. This is not the first time that the Twitter account is got hacked.’
How hackers hack into twitter’s security:
Twitter has confirmed that hackers have successfully got access to their internal systems. They have carried this whole thing by targeting the employees who have access to the internal systems. Hackers took access to the high-profiles. And posted some malicious content on their timeline. This all shows how casually twitter is taking its security services. For which it is getting trolled on twitter also. However, Twitter has declared this a malicious activity and removed all the tweets from their timeline. Moreover, the Twitter team has assured its users to take care of this event and to look into the matter. Where on the other hand publically available blockchain displays that some of the users have become the victim of this event and the hackers have received $100,000 ( approx 75,22,200 rs).
During the security breach, some of the high profile account holders were not able to get their access back. Besides Elon Musk, Amazon founder Jeff Bezos, Microsft co-founder Bill Gates and also the corporate accounts Uber and Apple accounts have been affected. All the users are having Millions of followers. So, from now on at least the twitter team should take its security seriously.
