More Twitter news, … its not what we first thought

Hello everyone, welcome back to the technology blog and podcast’s blog. We’ve got some more twitter news, and its not what we think it is. While there was a hack, it wasn’t a hack in the sense of the term. It was more of the Social Engeneering type of hack, where tools that can bypass two-factor authentication didn’t help them.

Krebs on Security is one source that recently published an article detailing what had happened. Twit’s Security Now Host, Steve Gibson was on a twit show on July 16, 2020 and he talked about how these tools which are administrative tools can bypass two–factor authentication. Krebs article indicate that they can sell fully valid email twitter accounts between 2 and 3 grand a piece. Steve Gibson inicates that it may be possible that an employee may have been paid off to help the intruders.

Who’s Behind Wednesday’s Epic Twitter Hack? is the article that is written by Brian Krebs. Steve tweeted Hackers Convinced Twitter Employee to Help Them Hijack Accounts which apparently has screen shots of the internal tools that Twitter uses to maintain their service. This comes from Motherboard Vice, and I’ve not yet read this article as of yet so can’t comment further.

I’m sure that this story is still developing and news will continue to come out on this and we’ll be here to bring as much of it as possible to you. Thanks for reading and make it a great day!
