Twitter Denies Responsibility for Fraudulent SEC Tweet: Security Breach Review

Twitter recently found itself in the midst of a security breach when a fraudulent tweet was sent from the SEC's account, falsely announcing the approval of 13 spot Bitcoin ETFs. Despite the alarming nature of the incident, Twitter has firmly denied any responsibility for the compromise. According to Twitter's Safety team, the breach occurred due to an unidentified individual gaining control over a phone number linked to the SECGov account.

In response to this breach, Twitter has advised all users to enable this additional layer of security to protect their accounts from similar incidents in the future.

Key Points:

  • Twitter denies responsibility for fraudulent tweet from SEC's account regarding Bitcoin ETFs approval.
  • Breach attributed to unauthorized individual gaining control over phone number associated with SECGov account.
  • Lack of two-factor authentication on SEC's account, despite previous recommendation by SEC chair Gary Gensler.
  • Twitter advises all users to enable two-factor authentication for enhanced security measures.
