The fraudulent user Ryushi uploaded a post in which he claimed to have discovered a database containing prominent people’s emails, phone numbers, and other private information. Alon Gal posted information on LinkedIn about the initial post and the breach.

AOC, Steve Wozniak, Kevin O’Leary, Donald Trump Jr., and other notable individuals’ private information was among the sample of 1,000 accounts the actor offered to show the accuracy of the data, according to Ryushi’s article.
The list also includes the account for the Indian Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. The hacker asks Elon Musk to purchase the data to prevent any GDPR legal action.
The hacker alleges that the data was collected through a Twitter exploit up to the beginning of 2022. He gave thorough justification for why Musk should follow his advice or risk being subject to numerous legal actions across the globe. Business Today examined some of the hacker’s data.
It appears to include private information like the user’s email address and, in some circumstances, even phone number. There is no guarantee that the remaining info is accurate.
