Wednesday night for micro-blogging site Twitter was completely frightening. The Twitter accounts of many veterans of the world including Barack Obama, Bill Gates were hacked, after which Twitter limited the accounts of some blue ticks for several hours that means they could not tweet. After hacking the account, money was being sought in the form of bitcoins by tweeting from all the accounts, although this difficulty has been removed immediately.
Whose account has been hacked, what has been tweeted?
Twitter accounts of how many veterans were hacked together, including former US President Barack Obama, Amazon chief Jeff Bezos, Democratic Party presidential candidate Joe Biden, Microsoft’s Bill Gates. And the same was tweeted from everyone’s account, you send money through bitcoin and we will give you double the money.
Apart from this, it was also written in the tweet that the time has come that we should return what we have earned from society. With these tweets, it was said to give money through bitcoin.
For example, it was written from Bill Gates’ Twitter account that everyone is telling me that it is time to give back to the society, so I want to say that I will return double the payment that will be sent to me in the next thirty minutes. You send bitcoin for 1000 dollars, I will send back 2000 dollars.
Has anyone been harmed?
If such a tweet was made from such a large profile, then obviously everyone was shocked. Alperovich, who heads the cybersecurity, says that the common people have been hurt to some extent. Amidst this hack, hackers have been able to extract 1 lakh 10 thousand dollars bitcoin from about 300 people.
What is bitcoin?
Let me tell you that just as there are rupees and dollars, now there are bitcoins. This is a digital currency, which can be kept in a digital bank only. Now it has been implemented in a few countries and the price of one bitcoin is very high everywhere. According to the investment, people find it quite attractive.
Tweeting on behalf of Twitter CEO Jack, it has been said that today was a very difficult day on Twitter, we tried to stop the hacking. For this, a lot of accounts were closed, although now accounts have been resumed. The investigation of how this hacking happened and who was behind it continues.
Let me tell you that this is not the first time that a case of hacking has come up on Twitter. Even before this, hacking has surfaced in some countries, but then a big account or some account was targeted. But this time a large number of celebrities were targeted and this time the purpose was also to lime in away. Because the incident of asking for such bitcoins has happened for the first time.
After this hacking, many kinds of questions are being raised by specialists. Because if hackers are easily capturing the backhand of Twitter and thus tweeting from big accounts, then the common people are at a loss. The result of which has been shown even after several thousand dollars of bitcoin.
