The Data Of 400 Million Stolen Twitter Users Is Sold For $200,000

-The hacker warns Elon Musk that he must purchase the stolen data to avoid a fine for non-compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation.

Elon Musk loves Twitter. This time, a hacker claims that he has the data of 400 million users extracted through vulnerability to sell them for $200,000 (approximately 180,000 euros).

Hudson Rock (Israeli cybersecurity firm) indicates in a tweet that “the private database contains devastating amounts of information, including emails and phone numbers of high-profile users.”

The hacker ‘Ryushi’ obtained the data through a vulnerability in Twitter in early 2022. In addition, web3 DeFiYield points out those 1,000 accounts have been verified and points out that the leak is real.

On the Breached forum, known for these types of leaks, the threat actor warns Elon Musk that he must purchase the data for $200,000 to avoid a fine for non-compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Meanwhile, the Irish Data Protection Commission (DPC) begins investigating the data leak of 5.4 million users after confirming the theft.

In these cases, at 20Bits we recommend that Internet users change their password and be aware of phishing attacks so that the phone number and email are not made public on the Internet.
