The FBI played a leading role in the investigation into Twitter hacks on Wednesday, which Twitter now says "in a way" has affected about 130 user accounts on the main social network.
According to an update from Twitter support Friday morning UTC, they are working with affected users to regain access to their accounts, which he says may "take additional time" as additional security precautions are taken to ensure access is granted only to legitimate account holders.
Currently, Twitter has not said whether any personal information was compromised in the attack, and in its most recent update today, the company only said that this was something "it continues to evaluate". Yesterday, they said they had no evidence that the attackers had access to passwords: "At the moment, we do not believe that resetting your password is necessary."
Meanwhile, Reuters reported yesterday that the FBI is leading the investigation into the attack. The Wall Street Journal reported that New York Governor Andrew Como also said that the Financial Services Department in New York would investigate it.
After the attack, a consultant was also sent from the US Treasury's Financial Crime Prevention Network, to notify crypto exchanges and other financial institutions with knowledge of the matter to report any suspicious activity believed to be linked to piracy.
In addition, the potentially dangerous effects of piracy also seem to sink into political circles, as at least two letters from the US Senators have so far been sent to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
In the first message sent on Wednesday, Josh Hawley, the Missouri Republican senator, expressed concern about the number of users whose personal information was at risk, as well as whether the U.S. President's private account on Twitter was absolutely threatened by the accident.
The same sentiment was shared by the Republican Senator from Mississippi and Senate Trade Committee Chairman Roger Wicker, who in his message from Twitter asked for a committee session on the accident "as soon as possible."
Meanwhile, in the crypto community, individuals and companies are also using their own resources to shed more light on who might be behind Wednesday's attack.
The cryptocurrency risk management company, Elliptic, said that the bitcoin collected in the fraud - totaling about $ 120,000 - has now been moved to 12 new addresses.
"A very small percentage of the money has been sent to well-known and organized cryptocurrency exchange programs ... and this is important because it can be an important leader for law enforcement investigators looking to identify a hacker, where they can request an exchange of account identity that they said they got that money." , Adding that nearly half of the collected bitcoin has been passed through a bitcoin address active since May this year.
Another Whitestream blockchain intelligence company claims that this address had previously interacted with Coinbase exchange processors and BitPay crypto and CoinPayments.
