How did he hack? 🤔

Seems strange. Source?

All of them?

No, only a few and then probably privilege escalation

You need one account that is part of administrator tools, not all of them

Is that a clip from Jonestown ?

jonestown didnt kill itselfthey were murdered by CIA. the local physician who was the first medical professional on the scene, reported that most victims had puncture wounds from injections in their bacl. some were shot or strangled.

"Washington DC Field Office Cyber Crimes Unit analyzed the blockchain and de-anonymized bitcoin transactions allowing for the identification of two different hackers. This case serves as a great example of how following the money, international collaboration, and public-private partnerships can work to successfully take down a perceived anonymous criminal enterprise."

"IRS-CI will continue to follow the money and unravel complex financial transactions."

Very strange

Lol. Why did they not use monero and tor?

they had admin access to twitter and all they could think of doing with it was "send btc, you'll get double back" really isn't surprising at all

They could have made alot more $ than they did . . What was it only 12 Bitcoin? And then they got caught

WannaCry swapped everything to Monero (XMR) therefore he is still anonymous

The hacker is probably enjoying his life somewhere

How did he hack? 🤔

He targeted Twitter employees and phished them and when he did that, the coast was clear for him as he gained access using the Twitter employees credentials

Eventually someone will break Monero's privacy

That is what happened to previous encryption algorithms.

And I somewhat agree

I agree with him too

The closest to something like that was in 2017-2018

With a 4-5% rate of false positives and innacurac

Monero has never been broken

Never does mean it is impossible nor undoable.It's a matter of time

People say that to BTC all the time

It seems like people want to prove 1 ≠ 2-1

Even if the algorithm is broken, there is still something called false positvites, innacurency and such

I just say look at previous algorithms

Very powerful computers may crack today's encryption algorithms

Do you know OTP?
