Twitter, the three hackers of the attempted Bitcoin fraud arrested: the profiles of Obama, Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates were violated


Behind the attempted Bitcoin scam on Twitter would conceal three boys between 17 and 22 years old. The US justice department reported this. In addition to the 17-year-old from Tampa, Florida, whose name has remained anonymous, the other two accused are Mason Sheppard, 19, from southern England, and Nima Fazeli, 22, a resident of Orlando. On July 15, the three hacked Twitter accounts of characters like Jeff Bezos, Kim Kardashian and Barack Obama, posting a fake tweet with a donation request. According to federal prosecutor David L. Anderson, the three acted “for fun and not for profit”.

Anderson also said that “in the hacker community there is a false belief that attacks like the one on Twitter can be conducted anonymously and without consequences, but I want to tell potential criminals that if you break the law we will find you” .

The 17-year-old was indicted with 30 charges, including computer fraud and fraudulent use of personal information. “He is apparently a boy who has just finished high school,” explains Florida prosecutor Andrew Warren, “but we must not be misled. The attack conducted has had a magnitude never seen before.”
