Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Welcome to Rob Song podcast where I bring the latest Progressive News and politics in ten minutes or less I'm Robert Cunningham. Thank you for tuning in. Let's get informed. Twitter says they're cybersecurity. Breach Wednesday affected one hundred thirty accounts including high profile users such as Joe Biden and Kanye West. The company explained in a blog post that perpetrators downloaded data from eight of the one hundred thirty accounts that were compromised. None of these eight accounts were from an official account of public figure they say. Beyond Biden Kanye, former president Barack Obama and billionaires, Elon Musk and Jeff, bezos were victim to the cybersecurity breach which allowed hackers to tweet out a bitcoin hoax from these accounts. This tried to get users to send bitcoin payments from followers by promising to double any pledges their way in Bitcoin. Twitter has a pretty clear understanding of how this breach took place to begin with. A statement by the company reads. The attackers successfully manipulated a small number of employees and use their credentials to access twitter's internal systems, including getting through our two factor protections. As of now we know that they access tools only available to our internal support teams to target one hundred thirty twitter accounts for forty five of those accounts, the attackers were able to initiate a password reset log into the account and send tweets. Here's an example of what one of the hack messages was from Elon Musk's account. Feeling grateful doubling all payments sent to my BTC address. You send one thousand dollars I send it back two thousand dollars only doing this for the next thirty minutes. Okay, so please arm yourselves with the knowledge that this sort of thing is likely fake in almost every instance, even if it's coming from verified account. Sadly on Friday. Civil Rights, leader and American hero representative. John Lewis of Georgia died. Lewis was eight years old and had pancreatic cancer. In December of two thousand, nineteen, Louis shared the sad news of his diagnosis. Lewis is passing prompted many positive messages on social media such as Elizabeth. Warren tweeting the following. Quote John Lewis was, and always will be an American hero and champion for civil rights who inspired us to all make good trouble in the fight for justice. Rest in power. Rep. John, Lewis. Then, we have Republican Senator Marco Rubio on the other hand writing for Mashal, Alice, informed says. On Saturday Senator Marco. Rubio inserted both of his feet into his mouth with a poorly executed tribute to late civil rights legend John Lewis. What could she be referring to? You might ask well. Rubio tweeted a memorial message about John. Lewis along with a picture of Rubio beside a black lawmaker. The problem is that black lawmaker was not John Lewis. It was Elijah Cummings of Maryland. Who died last October? So besides Rubio, being an absolute buffoon, he's also horrible on policy, so if you live in Florida, please vote against him in twenty twenty two..
