OpenAI CTO’s Twitter hacked for promoting fake $OPENAI crypto airdrop.

News has emerged that OpenAI’s Chief Technology Officer, Mira Murati, has had her Twitter account hacked, adding to the string of high-profile Twitter account hacks. The hacker behind the attack used Mira’s account to promote a fake $OPENAI token airdrop. The token was said to be motivated by AI-based language and aimed to promote decentralization and encourage participation in the Ethereum blockchain. The hacker used a phishing link to a website that looked identical to the official OpenAI site. The link prompted users to connect to a crypto wallet, which was intended to scam users of their NFTs and ERC-20 tokens. The scammer disallowed comments on the tweet, which prevented many people from notifying others faster. The tweet was viewed by close to 80,000 people and had close to 90 retweets before being taken down within an hour.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time that the Twitter accounts of notable figures have been hacked. In the past year, many famous people and crypto exchanges, including Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Joe Biden, Binance, and blockchain, have had their Twitter accounts hacked. These attacks were also carried out using fake links. Crypto has been a major target of many cyberattacks because of its nature. Until proper regulatory procedures are generally accepted, it may still be a haven for criminals.
