This was a crazy one: The Twitter accounts of Apple, Elon Musk, Joe Biden and many, many others were compromised yesterday, posting messages with the address of a bitcoin wallet, promising that any payments would be doubled and sent back.
Apparently a hacker used an internal Twitter administrative tool to gain access to all of these accounts.
The company described this as “a coordinated social engineering attack by people who successfully targeted some of our employees with access to internal systems and tools.”
We have locked accounts that were compromised and will restore access to the original account owner only when we are certain we can do so securely.
