    Doesn't it mean that any twitter account can be accessed by thrird parties using some sort of a bug/backdoor on twitter end? It is unlikely that all mentioned persons and businesses did have their twitter accounts and/or devices hacked at the same time (all of them should have clicked on virus links, or used outdated OS, etc).

    They'll exchange the BTC to Monero and complete their sad mission. Wont be able to trace it after.
    Only way to find out who did it is on Twitters end, if they haven't covered their footsteps.

    Sad.

    emotet-infographic.png hmmm hackers.

    I own Emotet.com

    It has it's own Wikipedia.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emotet

    Emotet the world's most dangerous malware

    I seem to recall a security expert once stopped a virus or malware in it's tracks by simply registering the EMD for the virus. lol

    I can't find the article now.

    "Emotet" in quotes 1,210,000 results
    in title: emotet 178,000 results

    https://www.wired.com/2017/05/accidental-kill-switch-slowed-fridays-massive-ransomware-attack/

    Fascinating story. Its believed it was written to check for this random domain name being registered in an attempt to thwart security researchers. When they look at malware they do it in a sandboxed environment not connected to the internet but they spoof the existence of any website the malware connects to. So its suspected they checked for this random domain nobody would normally think to register because in a sandbox it would show as registered then the malware does nothing. This researcher found a reference to this domain when looking at this malware registered it to see what would happen and poof now the malware thinks every machine is a security researchers sandbox and won't actually do its thing

    nice! thanks! I remember reading something like that a a while ago. I haven't seen Emotet stop working since I registered Emotet.com lol also own Riskwares.com

    My girl was tricked by something like this via twitter. it said it would double whatever XRP she sent. website was XrpGets.com. She said it looked legit. I wish she would have asked me first. it was via a legit looking Twitter account that a member of Ripple seemed to be connected with.

    This is a major black eye for both Twitter and Bitcoin. The fact so many top users were able to be hacked on Twitter, accounts that should have extreme security, is a really bad look for their security.

    All the suckers that sent Bitcoin in this scam, that money is gone for good. Unlike traditional payment methods there is no refund mechanism.

    The guy might walk away with a few hundred thousand, and it will likely cost Twitter billions in market cap.

    For more than a week now crypto YouTube videos have been bombarded with scam giveaways (ads preceding or during the video) supposedly from prominent tech industry leaders. They show a video of an interview with a famous tech personality and promise to return double what individuals send to the wallet address they provide.

    This might be the start of taking down the bitcoin and all the crypto payments.
    First step in the road.

    As long as those gullible people exist around the world - scams like this will happen.
    Today its Twitter - tomorrow it could be something else.
    Insatiable greed for Money overshadows common wisdom.
