The woods are thick with cyber thieves. Today on Twitter the accounts of Joe Biden, Barack Obama, Bill Gates and Elon Musk were compromised and a bitcoin wallet related to the scam appears to have received around $100,000, according to CNBC. Here’s a screenshot of what appeared.

Axios:

Details: The accounts of Jeff Bezos, Mike Bloomberg and Kanye West, as well as companies Apple, Bitcoin.org, Coinbase and Ripple, were similarly compromised, in addition to several others.

  • Twitter said in a statement: “We are aware of a security incident impacting accounts on Twitter. We are investigating and taking steps to fix it. We will update everyone shortly.”

  • A Biden spokesperson said in a statement: “Twitter locked down the account immediately following the breach and removed the related tweet. We remain in touch with Twitter on the matter.”
