5:11 pm
of all people i mean the c.e.o. of twitter how could he lose control of his account it's not as difficult as you might think i mean these were the account was hacked yesterday afternoon twitter seemed to be well aware of it quite quickly they said within 30 minutes everything was back under control and posted a tweet of their own a few hours later saying the phone number assessor the account was compromised due to a security oversight by the mobile provider is allowed in an authorized person to compose and send tweets via text message from the phone number but that issue is now resolved at least resolved for the moment for you. this one count jack dorsey the hackers who are still unknown there is some connection to a chat group within these hacks tweets but still unclear who's actually responsible but as the twitter themselves said referring to the mobile provider the likely cause was that he was the victim of a sim swap ok so you know if this can happen to the c.e.o. of twitter then presumably a sin swap could happen to anyone i mean walk us through that happens to everyone
5:12 pm
happens to a lot of people not only on twitter a sim swap is basically when somebody can convince your mobile provider that they need your phone number posing as you on a different sim card and if they can convince your mobile writer to swap the phone number to a sim card the game's over and anything you use your phone number for is now in possession of those people i mean it's happened to many many instagram accounts actually in addition to $220000000.00 lawsuit against $880.00 the major american telecommunications company because people lost millions and millions of dollars in crypto currency using their phone number to secure their crypto accounts so this has been happening a lot and people don't really see their cell phone numbers as something to think about people think about bank accounts credit cards e-mail addresses as things that need to be secure but not so much phone numbers but of course we all use our cell phone numbers now in a 2 step verification process which is what we're told is a super secure way to keep our social media accounts our bank accounts and the like
5:13 pm
all safe but phone numbers were never really seen as something that would be a secure way of ident of identifying you just think about in the good old days phone numbers used to be publicly available in the phone book so phone companies are really prepared to find ways to make your cell phone number safe how can we make ourselves safe i mean i have a twitter account how can i protect it well to stop verification is still the best way the experts say to keep all of your online presence safe but there are ways to keep your phone number that you used to stop verification safe obviously don't just be giving it out and putting it online anywhere. experts also say you should call your mobile phone provider try to hack yourself call your mobile phone provider and see how much information they'll give you before they ask you for any passwords any kind of pin numbers anything to identify who you are because many mobile phone providers at the basic customer service level they're not tech experts are not security experts they're just customer service reps who are trying to do their job and provide customer service so call your mobile phone provider if there's no
5:14 pm
passwords on your account on your phone number get that put in to at least add extra layers that hackers have to get through before they can get to your phone number ok hack yourself interesting advise there like that oh really. thank you very much in friday's bonus legal action rb leipzig continued their superbowl start of the season with an away win against rusia mentioned. was the hero for bipes the striker scoring his 1st ever bundesliga hat trick as he took care of the scoring in his side's $31.00 victory the win means leipsic are still undefeated after 3 games and it takes them to the top of the take . tennis now in the u.s. open where a few of this year's favorites breezed into the final 16 including roger federer he defeated dan evans the swiss dominating the brits a cruise to a comfortable win in 3 straight sets meanwhile serena williams also taking taking
