London. The email of more than 20 crore (200 million) users of the social media site Twitter, which claims millions of data security, has been hacked (200 million Twitter users’ email leak). According to a Reuters report, hackers stole the email addresses of more than 200 million Twitter users and posted them on an online hacking forum. Describing it as one of the most significant leaks, Alon Gal, co-founder of Israeli cyber-security-monitoring firm Hudson Rock, wrote on LinkedIn that there is now a lot of hacking, phishing, and doxing with such a large number of emails leaked. (Doxing) will be encouraged.
At the same time, Twitter has not commented on the report of hacking, which was first posted by Gall on social media on December 24, nor has it shared any information in this regard. Troy Hunt, creator of the breach-notification site Have I Been Pwned, said on the leaked data that the data posted on the hacking platform was stolen from Twitter itself. However, there is a possibility that the data leak happened before Elon Musk took over the company.
Data was posted on the dark web earlier also
The data of about 400 million users of the microblogging site Twitter was also leaked last month. This data has been put up for sale on the dark web. The hacker has also given the names, emails, number of followers, and phone numbers of some users as evidence for the genuineness of the data. Let us tell you that when the data was leaked last time, then the data of the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and Bollywood actor Salman Khan was also leaked. According to a media report, the hacker also stole the data of the American Space Agency NASA, and the World Health Organization (WHO).
