Billionaire Elon Musk has been on the agenda since he bought Twitter. For months, the course of the social media platform and various developments have been on the agenda. Elon Musk’s moves and his steps towards US President Biden drew attention. It seems that the most sensational business person and social media of 2022 will not lose their position on the agenda this year as well. Hackers, who allegedly made an offer to Elon Musk, detonated the bomb a week later. Anonymous hackers released the data of 235 million Twitter accounts for free.
Hackers Release Data of 235 Million Twitter Accounts for Free
The hackers, who allegedly could not agree with Elon Musk, published the data of 235 million Twitter accounts they seized for free. In addition, a Dark Web user opened 1,000 Twitter accounts for trial access to confirm that the data is genuine.
Analysis by Cybernews revealed that the stolen data has a size of about 63 GB. In this stolen data, there is a lot of information such as e-mail addresses and phone numbers.
Hackers who stole the data of 400 million Twitter accounts blackmailed Elon Musk. Hackers demanded Musk to buy this data. However, the fact that Musk did not make any response angered the hackers. Data from 235 million Twitter accounts is now circulating on the Dark Web.
In the past, Facebook was fined hundreds of millions of dollars as a result of such an event. The same legal process is expected to be initiated for Twitter as well.
