Hacker Guesses Donald Trump’s ‘laughably obvious’ Twitter Password!

Share

A Dutch researcher guessed ‘maga2020!’ on his fifth guess, gaining access to the US president’s messages and could post tweets in his name and change his profile!

The researcher, Victor Gevers, gained access to the president’s messages and could post tweets to Trump’s 87m followers in his name. He could even have changed the US presidents profile if he had wanted to. A privacy researcher at ProPrivacy, Andreas Theodorou, said: “For the President of the United States to use such a weak password is, not simply an embarrassment, it is clearly dangerously incompetent.

“Given the President’s near-constant activity on Twitter, his 87 million followers and the sheer power that he holds as the leader of the free world, Trump’s ‘maga2020!’ password is incomprehensibly dangerous. In fact any other year, I would be inclined to believe that this was Fake News. A password this laughably obvious would have made it entirely possible for a person to hack into his account and declare (fake) war.”
