Verified Twitter accounts hacked in $580k ‘Elon Musk’ crypto scam

Over the past week, security researcher MalwareHunterTeam has seen an uptick in verified Twitter accounts hacked in a scam promoting another fake Elon Musk cryptocurrency giveaway.

These accounts will reply to tweets, like Elon Musk's below, and promote a scam where Musk is allegedly giving away free cryptocurrency.

The tweets will contain links that redirect to Medium article promoting the fake giveaway. The articles contain further links to the scam landing pages that state if you send bitcoins to the listed address, they will send you back twice the amount.
