Expert says Twitter breach undermines trust
A breach in Twitter's security that allowed hackers to break into the accounts of leaders and technology moguls is one of the worst attacks in recent years.
somebody got into all of these v i. P s everyone from Joe Biden to deal must apple and they were able to coast one message that said, Send us Bitcoin so we can return it back to times to you and a couple people dead. And they think about $100,000 went to the scammers. Eso It caused a huge uproar be house trivial, as was his hack. And they had to shut down key parts of the system for a couple hours at site. The scam itself was a fat bad. The bigger concern is that these scammers could do it. These hackers actually got into the systems of all of these people. And the difference here isn't that they didn't break into the end users accounts they broke through through this Twitter system account. So this is a capability within Twitter to be able to go into people's accounts and take control of them. They could have just cutting pace of the same message. But every single one of them was crafted to the way that that leader I would speak to their audiences. It was not only the fact that they could do this but they could emulate the tone and the cadence and that voice of each of those people. Twitter's response has been. We know we have a problem when we're working on it, trust us, which is in many ways not adequate because it was such a big breach happens. You want to answer for the fact that why was there one single point of failure here versus multiple ways to make sure that nothing goes wrong? Trust is the core issue here. Do we trust Twitter with our accounts to be trusted, they were going to do the right thing. And when your credibility is hurt biting incident like this, you have to work extra hard to rebuild that reputation. We build that trust.
