Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey's account hacked; Twitter Blames Mobile Provider 'Oversight'

Breaking: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's account has been hacked

"We're working on it and investigating what happened".

It also attributed the fault for the hack to Dorsey's mobile phone company.

The controversial tweets that stated Adolf Hitler was innocent and racist slurs directed towards black people and jews.

Jack Dorsey's unauthorized tweets were broadcast to more than 4 million users and sent Twitter into a frenzy, with many actively tagging Twitter Security and Twitter Communications, hoping to alert them to the problem.

Clarifying that Twitter's programs haven't been compromised, the corporate defined that the cellphone quantity was utilized by the unauthorised particular person to log in and function the account. A Buzzfeed reported that the discussions on the chat recommended that the hackers had been planning to focus on President Donald Trump's account as effectively. As such, Jack's actual Twitter account wasn't breached - his account's connection to Cloudhopper likely was.

Twitter acquired Cloudhopper in 2010.

Breaking: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's account has been hacked

The Chuckling Squad, which claimed to be behind the takeover of Dorsey's account, have had their handle suspended by Twitter.

The Chuckle Squad appears to be the same group that attacked a number of YouTube celebrities last week on Twitter, including beauty vlogger James Charles, Shane Dawson, and comedian King Bach.

Customers had recommended that their accounts had been hacked following the SIM card swap performed by AT&T staff.

Twitter said that the phone number associated with Dorsey's account was "compromised due to a security oversight by the mobile provider", allowing a hacker to posts tweets to @jack by sending text messages. It is anticipated that Dorsey's account may have been compromised by an authorized third-party app rather than obtaining Dorsey's account password.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey speaks during a press event at CES 2019 at the Aria Resort & Casino on 9 January 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The group had stated that it was "testing" the safety.
