After the recent hacking of some of the world’s largest Twitter accounts, the Indian government has sent a notice to the company.
The government has reportedly asked the company to disclose all the details of the hack.
In addition, Twitter was asked to inform the government of the number of Indian users affected by this hack.
According to a source close to the information that has contacted PTI, the government is also asking for more details.
Above all, it wants to know how many Indian users have visited the links to the scam websites. It also wants to know if the company has informed affected users of the risk to their accounts.
Other than that, the government is asking Twitter about the vulnerability exploited by the hackers and what the company can do to remedy the situation.
In case you don’t know, some of the most popular Twitter accounts were hacked a few days ago.
The hack affected verified profiles, including those of Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Barack Obama, and more.
The hackers used the verified accounts to tweet links to malicious websites as part of a Bitcoin scam. Twitter deleted the tweets and disabled tweeting for a while for all verified accounts on its platform.
It is unclear whether Twitter has responded to the government so far. However, we will tell you more about the topic as soon as we receive more information.
