IN company felt that the FBI’s involvement in the investigation of the recent attack on Twitter was enough to reach the attackers
Blockchain company TRON will not pay $ 1 million in reward for information about the largest attack on Twitter, as a result of which dozens of personal pages of famous personalities were hacked.
About this tweeted by TRON founder Justin Sun.
Sun says FBI involvement in Twitter attack is enough for search for intruders.
TRON founder writes that the bounty for information about the attack has been canceled “in order not to interfere with the FBI investigation.”.
“We originally offered a reward to reach out to hackers, but Now, when the FBI took up the investigation, we had no other choice, Besides how to obey law enforcement. Award was withdrawn to avoid interfering with FBI investigation. Hopefully, The FBI will catch the hackers soon! ”Sun wrote.
In the midst of a sensation
For the first time, TRON founder announced intention pay $ 1 million for information about hackers nearly at once after Twitter attacks.
On the same day, July 15, TRON issued an official press release, according to which, the company is “investigating the cause of the hack” Twitter.
Justin Sun’s $ 1 Reward million will be transferred to the person or persons who will track down the hackers and provide information to arrest [the suspects], ”the press release said..
Many, under the Twitter post of the TRON founder, reminded of the constant volatility of plans, as a result of which, the TRON CEO abandoned their words.
“The reward has been canceled. [Giveaway] Tesla canceled. [Launch] TRON 4.0 canceled. Expected, “wrote a user with the nickname Crypto Whale (@CryptoWhale).
Marketing at any cost
Others users did not see a logical connection between the involvement of the FBI and the need to refuse monetary rewards for the capture of intruders.
Justin Giudici, head of the Telos Foundation, sees no formal reason other than a request from the FBI to cancel the payment of the bounty.
“Why did you decide that the FBI wouldn’t interfere? Why this [FBI involvement] important? They are have you formally asked to cancel the [reward]? You are full of bullshit. Pay in full, ”wrote Giudici.
In mid-July, a popular microblogging service Twitter was under massive attack by unknown attackers.
According to media reports, the attack was carried out not through cracking a service vulnerability, but was based mainly on social engineering.
As a result of the attack, the attackers were able to obtain access to the pages of Apple, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Changpeng Zhao, and also a dozen other cryptocurrency-focused companies and high-tech giants.
