LONDON: Twitter says the hackers responsible for a recent high-profile breach used the phone to fool the social media company’s employees into giving them access.
The company revealed a few more details late Thursday about the hack earlier this month, which it said targeted “a small number of employees through a phone spear-phishing attack.”
“This attack relied on a significant and concerted attempt to mislead certain employees and exploit human vulnerabilities to gain access to our internal systems,” the company tweeted.
