Highprofile Twitter accounts simultaneously hacked to spread alleged crypto scam

Elon Musk, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, and other high profile twitter users had their accounts hacked in order to spread a crypto scam. Twitter users were prompted by the tweets to send cryptocurrency to a bitcoin wallet, where they would then be sent back double the amount. Approximately $120,000 was received at the bitcoin wallet. And other sources in the hacker community speculate another target.

Anyone that is actually dealing in Bitcoin and is dumb enough to fall for this deserves to lose their money.

And no on put two plus two together. Not one day after Trump puts serious restrictions on China and Chinese supporters in USA this cyber attack of most prominent American people happens. If this is not unofficial declaration of war from Chinese government then people in USA are truly blinded by their freedoms.

Very little money for a hack this low level. It's obvious this was a real hack and not individual password security ignorance. They could have made a huge fortune if they played their cards right

It's a digital mock execution. Some people just letting us know they have capacity to interrupt things. Like the presidents direct link to the people

Technology it’s complicated, even if we as humanity have figured out how to do something - building it cost money. Most companies don’t have the resources to keep up with the hackers. Twitter I did not expect!
