  1. Man, that kid should have shot a dem in the back of the head in D.C. or run a child prostitute island.

    You know, something he could have gotten away with.

    But hack a social media site? TRY THAT LITTLE BASTARD AS AN ADULT WITH 30 FELONY CHARGES AGAINST HIM.

    Yeah.The FBI is on it like ho’s on Santa.

  2. Musk’s password must have been difficult, but Biden’s is *pswrd* and Obama’s is *memyme*…..

  3. Sounds like an accidental incursion to me, he could try a No Lo Contendere. Was that Agnew’s plea?

  4. Hmmm. “Ivan.” Sounds Russian.

    And the story sounded suspicious to me as in “look over here! while we expunge other information in DM’s from these accounts.” Just like “some shadowy character” who made the video disparaging Mohammad (Nakoula Basseley).

    Ya, I’m jaded.

  5. 17 Years old. Hacks into some very high level of accounts. His name is not Shaquan, or Mahmood, or Carlos. Hmmmmmm.

  6. Hats off and sharp bow to the FBI-Cyber team.

    All to familiar example of poor IT Security.

    Maybe the Twits should employ a few of the former X-Force at ISS.
    Really poor controls in place concerning personal account data.

    BTW: Mr. Clark will now have 3-10 years to learn better IT skills.

  7. Thinking about it…..they probably are threatening to railroad the kid unless he gives up some names.

    I mean…it was some bitcoin or something scam, right? They only made 100K. Seems like the federales got nothing. Kids a cutout. Disposable. Masterminds probably aren’t even in country.
