Bitcoin Scam: Bill Gates, Obama, and Others Twitter Account Hacked
Twitter is boiling from noon yesterday. Due to Bitcoin and Crypto scam, many world-famous politicians, artists, athletes, and Billionaire CEO’s Twitter account hacked. Names such as Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Kanye West, Cash App, Apple, Wiz Khalifa, Warren Buffet, Joe Biden, Mike Bloomberg, Barack Obama, MrBeast, Floyd Mayweather and XXXTentacion are among the hacked people.
Yesterday at 16:00 in America time, famous names like Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Kanye West, Cash App, Apple, Wiz Khalifa, Warren Buffet, Joe Biden, Mike Bloomberg, Barack Obama, MrBeast, Floyd Mayweather and XXXTentacion Twitter accounts were seized and bitcoin was requested from these accounts. From the hacked accounts, bitcoin accounts were shared, and those who would send bitcoins to these accounts were told that twice the bitcoin would be sent shortly.
After more than 1 hour after the incident, Twitter made a statement about the issue and announced that these accounts were hacked. He also shared that the hacked accounts were rendered unusable and that, after solving the problem, the accounts would be given to account holders.
Of course, such a situation shows that Twitter is facing a huge security gap. Also, tweets from twitter’s support account show that the company has not yet found the cause of the vulnerability.
World-famous names’ Twitter accounts have two-factor authentication. So you need to enter both username and password to login to the accounts. They also need to login via SMS received on their phones. The hacking of this phase also caused many question marks in mind.
In the posts made on Twitter, it is claimed that this deficit resulted from the capture of the Twitter management tool with all authority within Twitter. In other words, it turns out that the management tool with full authority and access to all users may have been hacked. Of course, this idea is now in the theory stage. We will continue to share with you as new developments occur.
