Hack Hits Twitter, Hackers Walk Away With $120,000 in Bitcoin
On Thursday, Twitter witnessed the biggest hack in the app’s history. A group of hackers is suspected to have been behind the social engineering attack on the platform.
At the center of the hack was a bitcoin multiplier scam asking people to send money to different addresses to receive two times of what they sent. The scam tweet initially showed up on account of cryptocurrency exchanges like Binance, Gemini, Coinbase, Cash App, Kucoin, and Bitfinex.
It quickly extended to the accounts of crypto personalities like CZ Binance, Charlie Lee, and Justin Sun. Twitter Support promptly sent out a tweet that mentioned that it was investigating the breach, only to end up compromised. The final part of the hack targeted major American accounts like Obama, Joe Biden, Kanye West, and Kim Kardashian.
Twitter eventually had to ban all tweets containing a bitcoin address and freeze verified accounts to manage the situation.
The elaborate scam managed to collect $120,000, which has been on  the move . Most exchanges have blocked transactions from or too the scam addresses.
At the time of writing, affected accounts have been restored, and Twitter is still investigating the hack.
