Twitter Hacked

On July 15Twitter faced the biggest security lapse in its history after an attacker managed to hijack nearly 130 high-profile twitter accounts, including Barack Obama, Kanye West, Joe Biden, Bill Gates, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Warren Buffett, Uber, and Apple.

Florida news channel has identified a 17 years old teen named Graham Clark of Tampa Bay this week in connection with the Twitter hack, who probably is the juvenile that U.S. Department of Justice mentioned in its press release.

According to the U.S. Department of JusticeMason Sheppard aka "Chaewon" 19, from the United Kingdom, Nima Fazeli aka "Rolex" 22, from Florida and an unnamed juvenile was charged this week with conspiracy to commit wire fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering, and the intentional access of a protected computer.

The broadly targeted hack posted similarly worded messages urging millions of followers of each profile to send money to a specific bitcoin wallet address in return for larger payback.

"Everyone is asking me to give back, and now is the time, You send $1,000; I send you back $2,000." a tweet from Mr. Gates' account said.

The fraud scheme helped the attackers reap more than $100,000 in Bitcoin from several victims within just a few hours after the tweets were posted.
