A Dutch cybersecurity researcher says he has accessed President Trump’s Twitter account, @realDonaldTrump, by guessing the password “maga2020!”. This is really shocking.
Dutch cyber information security expert Hervels claimed that he once again guessed the password of US President Trump’s Twitter account and successfully logged in to view his private messages. This time for multiple purposes, he shot again.
In any case, a Twitter spokesperson stated that there is no evidence that Hurveles’ remarks are true, and Twitter has taken the initiative to protect high-profile and election-related accounts.
According to the British “Guardian”, the Dutch cybersecurity expert named Victor Gavers claimed that he had guessed the password of the Twitter account of US President Trump again. You can post a tweet in Trump’s name and change his profile.
Moreover, Victor Gevers said that he entered “maga2020!” on the fifth attempt last week and it succeeded. “Maga” is the abbreviation of Trump’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again”.
The Dutch newspaper Volkswagen published an article on Thursday (22nd) that Gevers originally thought he would be blocked after four failed attempts, or at least he would be asked to provide more information, but Twitter gave him “refreshingly” At the fifth chance, I finally successfully logged into the account of the President of the United States. “This shows that Trump has not adopted two-step authentication information protection measures, which is worrying.”
This made him a little panic, and he immediately wrote an email to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber Security and The United States Computer Emergency Response Team (US-CERT) under the Infrastructure Security Agency soon discovered that the password for Trump’s Twitter account had been reset. Two days after cracking the password, the US Secret Service contacted Gavers and thanked him for pointing out the security loopholes in Trump’s account.
Dutch cybersecurity experts cracked Trump’s Twitter password again
Regarding the “account password cracked” incident, there is no evidence to prove the authenticity of Victor Gevers’s remarks.
It is worth mentioning that this is not the first time Gevers has obtained permission to the President’s Twitter account. In 2016, he and two other people guessed Trump’s Twitter password and entered his account. At that time, Trump’s password was “yourefired” (meaning “you got fired”), which was his catchphrase in his participation in the American reality TV show “Flying Huang Tengda” (also known as “The Apprentice”).
However, Dutch security expert Gevers told them that their own newspapers had easily accessed Trump’s account. This showed that the president did not use basic security measures such as two-step verification.
Speaking of the Netherlands, this is a strong agricultural country. Although the country has many disadvantages in terms of geography, its export volume of agricultural products can lead the world. Moreover, it is even better in the flower market.
The Netherlands has ASML, the world’s number one lithography machine manufacturer. If other countries want to make the most advanced chips, they must “supply” the Netherlands.
