Florida teen charged as “mastermind” in Twitter hack hitting Biden, Bezos, and others
The 17-year-old is facing 30 felony fraud charges.

Kate Cox and Dan Goodin - 7/31/2020

Authorities on Friday charged three people with orchestrating this month's epic hack of Twitter and using it to generate more than $100,000 in a bitcoin scam promoted by hijacked accounts of politicians, executives, and celebrities.

Federal prosecutors in San Francisco charged Mason Sheppard, 19, Nima Fazeli, 22, and an unnamed juvenile in the July 15 breach. Prosecutors in Florida, where the juvenile defendant lives, identified him as 17-year-old Graham Ivan Clark and charged him with 30 felony charges. Federal prosecutors said that Sheppard used the hacking names “Chaewon” and “ever so anxious#001” and resides in the UK town of Bognor Regis. Fazeli, who allegedly called himself “Rolex,” “Rolex#0373,” “Rolex#373,” and “Nim F,” is from Orlando, Florida.

The three suspects stand accused of using social engineering and other techniques to gain access to internal Twitter systems. They then allegedly used their control to take over what Twitter has said were 130 accounts. A small sampling of the account holders included former Vice President Joe Biden, Tesla founder Elon Musk, pop star Kanye West, and philanthropist and Microsoft founder, former CEO, and Chairman Bill Gates.

The defendants, prosecutors alleged, then caused the high-profile accounts—many of them with millions of followers—to promote scams that promised to double the returns if people deposited bitcoins into attacker-controlled wallets. The scheme generated more than $117,000. The hackers also took over accounts with short user names, which are highly coveted in a criminal hacking forum circle calling itself OGusers.
