A group of hackers have discovered a way to revive and take control of inactive Twitter accounts that have been suspended previously by the Twitter itself and they have made it public. Specifically, this has happened in the last few hours by a group known as “Spain Squad” who managed to reactivate the accounts that had been banned.
Hackers Find A Way To Recover Banned Twitter Accounts
One of the biggest concerns with the heads of most of the platforms which we know as social networks refer to the abuse that some users make these in order to harm others.
That is why developers of such software from time to time make various changes to their platform to ensure, as far as possible, privacy and comfort in using the accounts. This is something that, how could it be otherwise, also affects the social network known bluebird, Twitter. Therefore it is noteworthy that when an account of this social network is considered offensive to other users, simply it uses its general rule of bans.
However, in the last few hours, a group of hackers made it public and claimed that they have discovered a way to revive and take control of inactive accounts that have been suspended previously by the Twitter itself. Specifically, this has happened in the last hours by a group called “Spain Squad” who were managed to reactivate the accounts that had been banned such as @Hitler, @DarkNet @Hell, @LizardSquad among others. On the other hand, inactive Twitter accounts like @AK47, @megaupload, and @1337 were also found to be suddenly activated.
It is said that one of the main objectives of this action is none other than trying to sell accounts “resurrected” to those users who are willing to pay an amount of money to have a valuable account and with great impact on network social. But it seems that it does not end here, as it is speculated that the aforementioned group of hackers were able to do many more things related to this fact as well as “just” recovering the old banned accounts.
Although at the moment the hacker group “Spain Squad” has managed to reactivate the Twitter accounts that were suspended, yes, the dead accounts again gained life, hence, it draws attention and have also managed to gain users thereof and thus take control and turn them into active accounts, as if a conventional account in question. So far the group has only demonstrated this capacity officially, although there is talk that they are again preparing new actions of this kind.
At the moment the details of how they achieved the access to the banned accounts are not entirely clear, but what is certain is that if this group of hackers is able to perform this “trick”, the action could be quite lucrative for them as which in the past they have come to pay thousands of euros to take control of certain Twitter accounts.
