Twitter hacker’s virtual court hearing Zoombombed with music and dirty movies
As you know, 2020’s been an interesting year for innovation and the rethinking of social systems affected by the bloody ‘Rona. There’s had to be a plethora of changes to the way s**t’s run, and a large part of the load has fallen on the shoulders of video-communications software. The only problem with that are the inevitable kinks in the machine. One of the biggest ones, as a Florida judge found out, is not quite mastering the security settings…
Yeah, so basically, we love the irony of this one. The trial of a young hacker was interrupted by hackers. And, as you can tell from the headline, it was hacked in the worst way.
Graham Clark, a young whippersnapper was in the middle of a bond hearing when the hackers struck. Funnily enough, he was there for hacking Twitter accounts belonging to Barack Obama and Elon Musk. The little bugger had pocketed a hundred-thousand US dollarydoos from the scam, so as you can tell, he was in deep s**t.
To give you an idea of just how deep the previously mentioned s**t was, his lawyer was fighting to have the kid’s bond reduced to $750,000. Just as he got started, though, the fun began.
According to the Daily Mail, ‘Zoombombers’ posing as journalists joined the video meeting room and started playing a porn video and loud music.’ Yeah, that’s gonna throw a spanner in the works, no matter what you’re doing.
Apparently, they’d been able to get in because no one had thought to change the settings. As a result, no one was muted and anyone could share their screen. Fortunately, the judge was able to pause the meeting until they sorted it out, but still, what a bloody farce!
Final thought: If there’s one thing 2020 has taught us, it’s that we might well be heading into an exciting technologically-advanced future, but there’s a lot of blokes and blokettes who are just hanging onto the steering wheel and trying to steer between the lines without much of a clue where the brakes are. Yeah, nah, something tells us there’ll be a few more f**k-ups before we get there. What do you lot reckon?
