Twitter hacking suspects arrested and awaiting charges in court

Three people suspected of the recent Twitter hack have been brought to trial over a mass hacking attack on popular social networks.

The most high-profile social network hack revealed.

The alleged suspects in the Twitter hack are a British citizen, another person from Florida, and a 17-year-old teenager who also hails from Florida. Early on Friday, July 31, the FBI, IRS and us secret service arrested a 17-year-old boy named Graham Clark in Tampa.

Clarke was reportedly the head of a massive Twitter hack. Clarke, along with other Twitter hacking suspects, were able to access the Twitter accounts of more than 125 celebrities, tech giants, politicians and other interested parties.

They used these 125 accounts to launch a crypto Scam asking people to send a certain amount of Bitcoins to a certain wallet, and double it within minutes. Clarke, among other hacking suspects, is currently being held in jail as he faces trial as an adult with more than 30 criminal charges.

Law enforcement officers reveal details of the investigation.

U.S. attorney David L. Anderson from the Northern district of California, speaking about the arrest of a suspect in a hacker attack on Twitter, noted that there is a false opinion in the community of criminal hackers that attacks like the hacker attack on Twitter can be carried out anonymously and without consequences.

According to Twitter, after the hack, they explained that the attackers used the phone to trick social media employees into gaining access. They explained that some employees were subjected to a phone phishing attack, relying on significant and concerted attempts to mislead certain employees, and using human vulnerabilities to gain access to the internal system to be able to implement the fraud.

Along with a 17-year-old suspect from Florida who is said to have been the head of the operation, the US Department of justice has charged 22-year-old NIMA Fazeli, known as “rolex“ from Orlando, and nineteen-year-old Mason Sheppard, also known as “Chowon“ from Bognor Regis, in the United Kingdom.

Sheppard, as a British citizen, faces up to 45 years in prison, as well as a $ 2,500 fine for hacking if found guilty, while Fazeli, from Florida, could be sentenced to five years in prison for her role in the hacking attack if also found guilty.

A hack that has already become history.

Recall that on July 15, many cryptocurrency accounts of popular people and companies were hacked. As a result, the same message appeared on each of them, containing a suspicious partnership offer and an offer to distribute 5,000 BTC to the community.

Within minutes, the attack reached the accounts of bill gates, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Kanye West, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Apple, Uber and many others. The message was slightly different, but the final idea was the same – “giving away 5,000 BTC“. All you had to do to get a portion of this huge amount was send the funds in bitcoins to a specific address and wait to get double the amount. Needless to say, this was a fake cryptocurrency Scam. However, many people believed it, as some reports indicate that more than us $ 120,000 in PTS was sent to these fraudulent addresses.
