    Authorities accuse the one of the suspects of netting about $117,000 in digital currency from the hack, which affected the Twitter accounts of former President Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Kanye West and others.

    Updated 8:27 p.m. ET Wednesday
    Prosecutors have announced charges against three individuals, a 17-year-old from Florida and two men, from Florida and Britain, in connection with a hack that hit some of Twitter's most prominent accounts, in the largest and most well-coordinated security breach in the platform's history.
    Authorities in Florida say Graham Ivan Clark, 17, of Tampa, Fla., masterminded the attack, allegedly breaking into the accounts of 130 Twitter accounts and duping followers of influential users to transfer more than $100,000 in Bitcoin to accounts associated with Clark. He is charged with 30 felonies in the state, including fraud, identity theft and hacking.

    (NPR is naming Clark because he is being charged under Florida state law as an adult.)
    In addition, federal prosecutors unsealed wire fraud, money laundering and other charges against Nima Fazeli, 22, of Orlando, Fla. and Mason Sheppard, 19, of Bognor Regis, U.K. They are accused of helping Clark sell access to some of the hacked accounts.
    Twitter has said the hackers used a phone "spear phishing attack" to trick Twitter employees to turn over information that gave the attackers access to internal systems.
    The Florida prosecutors on Friday added new detail about how exactly the scheme worked: Clark allegedly presented himself as a member of Twitter's IT team to a Twitter employee, and convinced that employee to hand over company credentials, which Clark used to get into the company's customer service portal.
    Security protections were overcome and the passwords of some 130 accounts were reset, allowing the hackers to take control of the accounts, officials at Twitter have said.

    people are SOOOO stupid... they open every damn email they get esp the ones " You have 1.2millionUSD .. just reply with Name - Address - Phone Number and bank account info.

    Phishing Email to John Podesta led to the hacking of the DNC server and the release of Killary's emails ** note: it wasn't the russians that hacked the account despite what some here post in a certain forum here )

    37 times President Trump was soft on Russia
    Despite his claim that he is tough on Russia, President Donald Trump says he has not discussed US intelligence reports accusing Russia of offering bounties to Taliban fighters to kill US troops with President Vladimir Putin.

    NY prosecutors say Trump investigation extends beyond hush money payments

    Manhattan prosecutors on Monday asked a federal judge to dismiss President Donald Trump's lawsuit challenging a subpoena for his financial records, emphasizing that their investigation extends beyond hush-money payments and pointing to public reports of "extensive and protracted criminal conduct" at the Trump Organization.


    Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance's lawyers have previously said the probe is expansive, and on Monday they pointed out that when the subpoena was issued, "there were public allegations of possible criminal activity at Plaintiff's New York County-based Trump Organization dating back over a decade."

    Putting the legality aside these hackers were very clever and stupid at the same time. They gained access to a twitter internal administration tool that enabled them to change user's tweets. However, they completely failed by verifying their bitcoin wallet using a driving license and not masking their computer's location or ip address.
