In Musk's tweet, I bet the emperor once
The FBI office received a call that Twitter had been hacked in what could be the worst attack in history.
It was a Wednesday in July, and SpaceX President Musk's Twitter account posted a surprising message:
"Because of the new crown pneumonia,I decided to give generously to put bits onCoins are sent to the address belowOver the next hour, I'll double the amount of money I put into my Bitcoin address. For example, if you send $1000, I'll send you back $2,000 for a limited time of 30 minutes!Good luck!”
This familiar word art, this retro deception, is it really the taste of living in the same global village?
It's really hard to imagine that this kind of deep mountain filming of Ho Jianhua can't sit still.
Even the third pit sixth row of Qin Shihuang is not good information, actually appeared in the aviation tycoon's official account ...
This empty-gloved white wolf trick has been broken in China. Usually, the welfare bureau, known as "money back", is not reliable, in this most clumsy Ponzi scheme, once your money into someone else's account, it is doomed to the other side pull black after the money to run, money-hitter bamboo basket water.
However, it has to be admitted that when the official account of the blue V big man act together, have sent the scam message on their home page ... Everything becomes a bit magical realism.
First the founder of SpaceX, then Bill Gates, my grandfather, Kardashian, and even Uber's official Apple account have posted double rebates on their home pages, saying they're full of 1,000 to 2,000;
Soon, even Buffett, Obama, and Soon-to-be Biden joined the fight:
Many people don't believe it at first, but as more and more celebrities use their accounts to endorsement, a strange idea is getting stronger:
What if? What if you're really doing charity?
It's like you swipe a video on a certain sound, a pig flies in the sky, and it's well known that the video can't P, so there's only one explanation left: pigs can actually fly...
Worst hacking attack
Soon, officials urgently declared the news false, and Twitter claimed that celebrity accounts had been hacked.
Onlookers were surprised, Twitter's old face also seems to hang up: the social networking site known for its security is not safe at all, Comrade Chuan Jianguo's main public opinion battleground is full of loopholes, even the former president and presidential candidate's account can not be maintained, really big husband?
In an instant, the public's trust in the safety of the blue-bottomed white bird disappeared, the stock price saw a drop of 3%, all the way to accountability.
"This appears to be the worst hacking attack on a social media platform," the founder of a cybersecurity firm even told the media after the National Cyber Security Center issued a statement calling for a thorough investigation. "
After all, there is a precedent for celebrity Twitter theft: in 2019, Twitter's CEO account was stolen, and finally two Twitter employees who abused their power to send Akibo to politicians in other countries;
Before just "out of a traitor" can cause a stir, and this time the victims include both financial tycoons, as well as politicians, but also two flowering ...The FBI has good reason to suspect that such an attack on the eve of the U.S. election must have been a politically motivated hacking operation against the U.S. that required extra vigilance.
They believe the hackers will either turn their backs on the cloud and directly affect the U.S. stock market, or use public accounts to post fake news, shake hearts and influence the outcome of the election.
The only star on Weibo to confirm the stolen number, Lin Update
By accessing bitcoin's public transaction data, the FBI knew that the Twitter attack was related to a man named Kirk.And by the Qin Shihuang scam, he had already made $118,000 in three hours. In order to solve the case quickly, someone infiltrated the enemy camp and found two accomplices in the incident.
To tell you the truth, the partner was panicking because Kirk was playing too much.
A few weeks ago, in a hacking forum, Kirk contacted them and said he could get the Twitter password of anyone he wanted, but that he needed two companions to get in touch, and when it happened, everyone split the money. The two agreed, so the three men agreed, Kirk was in charge of stealing the number, and the other two were looking for a buyer.
Kirk said he was a Twitter employee, so he was able to steal accounts such as @y, s6, @L, @w and sell them through two partners. But Kirk's ambitions seem to be more than that, with more and more customers looking for him and Kirk's offer going up.
Originally the problem of cooperation is not big, but after a nap, the day changed: Kirk is not the same as said, he began to use Musk's message fraud, more and more stolen numbers, 130 accounts abnormal, and finally made the national attention, Twitter's security is questioned ... Kirk himself, the originator, was like evaporating, and they were completely out of touch.
Fearing they were involved, the two associates first released all their chats and screenshots to the police, busy acting as tainted witnesses, saying that while they had made some minor mistakes, they had nothing to do with using obama's Biden account to cheat money.
With the joint efforts of opponents and teammates, and the unexpected disclosure of the original perpetrator's transfer trail, the hacker who did his best to disrupt the U.S. general election finally surfaced:
Kirk, a 17-year-old teenager who had just graduated from high school. He's always had a lot of respect for the U.S. stock market, no conspiracy, no politics, just trying to cheat money.
From money cheaters to notorious hackers
Like all the other characters in the story, Kirl has an unhappy native family, and since his parents divorced, he, like many others, has become obsessed with a game called Mineth, especially the violent version.
His computer talent was probably full, so the game played well, and he later set up an account on Youtube to post his own videos on a daily basis. With fans, he started a business, sometimes selling equipment, sometimes selling accounts.
Soon, however, fans who traded with him discovered Kirk was a liar. Not only often after receiving money do not ship, take advertising money do not promote, and even check the ip address of netizens to attack them. As early as 16 or 17 years ago, he was playing games together by various netizens hung up.
At that time, he was only 14 years old.
Kirk's blocked account
After the game's social death, he focused on being a hacker. I don't know who he learned about hacking skills with, but it's clear that he hasn't been to school for a long time, because in a self-introduction to the hacking forum, he describes himself as a "full-time stolen school dropout who makes money for everyone."
However, his first account was quickly blocked by the administrator because he did the same thing as before: collecting other people's money, but not helping others steal the number.
Although the account was blocked by the forum, Kirk has already stolen 164 bitcoins from wealthy businessmen in 2019 using his skills - then worth $850,000 and now worth $1.8 million.
Kirk lives in a mansion
He was not not investigated by the FBI, but he was later released by authorities because of insufficient evidence and minors, and even the confiscated bitcoins were returned to Kirk's hands.
Presumably the big fish he's caught in 2019 gave him confidence, and this time on Twitter, he's got a new idea: The tech guys are already making $850,000, so how much is Obama plus Biden worth?
Obviously, Kirk is not a spy, nor is he the ability to bring down the U.S. stock market, he loves money.
But the most ironic thing is that in this operation with his team-mates to steal money, he once again, after receiving the money did not help people steal the number - "My World" story, and then re-tweeted.
Despite the high-profile Twitter attack, it's probably because the scam is so clumsy, or because these people's fans really don't have the money, Kirk has only been paid more than $100,000, and now east window incident, he is about to face 30 charges, the previous case has been turned over, life has not officially begun, he has been happy to wear the end of the prison.
Now that it's over, many people are wondering why Kirk didn't just steal Trump's number and cheat on his behalf, since he could steal Biden and Obama.
Presumably because, even without the stolen number, Trump is lying.
Trump's "Trump Lie Wall" in Brooklyn on September 28. The wall lists more than 20,000 of Trump's lies, with different colors representing different categories.
The walls of lies are arranged in chronological order and are divided into different colors by type, with information about immigrants, the environment, jobs, new crowns, and so on.
To look further at the order of lying, to take a step back and feel the point of lies - such a professional liar leader Trump, Qin Shihuang saw probably will also be self-deprecating.
