One of The Biggest Twitter Hack. Elon Musk, CZ Binance
On July 15, 2020, obscure assailants hacked the authority Twitter records of VIPs and numerous celebrities. Programmers sent tweets for their benefit about a phony appropriation of 5,000 BTC from an obscure site CryptoForHealth. Clients were approached to move $1000 to a Bitcoin wallet to get $2000 consequently.
Among the casualties were the Twitter pages of Bitcoin
Charlie Lee (Litecoin), Bitfinex exchange
Jeff Bezos (Amazon.com), Changpeng Zhao (Binance), Justin Sun (Tron)
Ripple (XRP), Cash App, Uber, Apple, Mike Bloomberg (one of the richest people in the world), Bill Gates (Microsoft)
Kanye West, Kim Kardashian West, and even former US President Barack Obama. Most of the tweets have now been deleted.
The attack was on social network employees and internal work tools. Twitter started an investigation and limited user options pending clarification:
About 12.86 BTC was sent to the attackers' address. Most likely, they sent some of them themselves to create the appearance of human participation. Soon the exchanges began to block transfers to the cybercriminals, but nevertheless, for all the time the cybercriminals received at least $100,000.
Twitter shares have already been predicted to fall sharply.
