The messages posted by the cybercriminals called for donations to be sent to the indicated cryptocurrency addresses. To date, evidence of fraudulent activity has been removed from Modi’s Twitter account..
“We are aware of this activity and have taken steps to protect the compromised account. An active investigation of the incident is underway, “the company said, adding that they have no evidence of a larger invasion, as was the case during the July attack..
Notably, Modi’s account is indeed used to alert full-fledged fundraising campaigns..
Meanwhile, the US authorities have identified the second teenager who may have been involved in a massive attack on Twitter in July. According to The New York Times, a 16-year-old Massachusetts resident was put on the wanted list, who, according to the investigation, may be associated with 17-year-old Graham Clark, previously detained as the organizer of the hack..
According to the publication, citing an unnamed source, the new suspect came to the attention of law enforcement officers because he continued to participate in phishing attacks after the Twitter hack. Presumably, in May, he met Clark online, after which the two of them began to invent methods of stealing data from Twitter employees, which ultimately allowed them to attack the accounts of a number of famous figures, including Barack Obama, Bill Gates and Elon Musk..
