A 17-year-old boy, alleged to be the brain behind the biggest security breach incident in Twitter history, is reportedly arrested in Florida.
In the recent incident, the accounts of Binance, Coinbase and many other crypto exchanges were first seized and called to send Bitcoin from these accounts to the shared address. While the event was limited to crypto exchanges and accounts in the first place, accounts of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Kim Kardashian and many other celebrities were seized in a short time, and hundreds of millions of followers from these accounts were directed to a fake Bitcoin gift campaign. A total of 120,000 dollars of crypto money was transferred to the shared address within hours.
