At the end of yesterdays post, I said “I wouldn’t be surprised if they target a new account using different celebrities names.” well today that happened, we saw large attacks on multiple verified accounts on Twitter. Some of these attacks included Target, Patheuk, Matalan and many more. Collectively the hackers got away with almost $200,000. I really do believe that this number will grow tremendously and that it’s just a matter of time until another large account is hacked.
As of writing this post it seems that one of google’s twitter accounts @gsuite was hacked on Twitter and has this Bitcoin scam posted.
I’m positive that Twitter is working on a fix to stop the attacks. Hopefully we won’t have any more of these major attacks in the future and that more people won’t fall for this scam.
