Porn Streams Interrupt Zoom Hearing of Alleged Twitter Hacker

The judge had to abruptly end the trial and said that he would require a password for future hearings.

According to several tweets, the trial of the alleged 17-year-old who hacked into prominent Twitter accounts was interrupted on Wednesday by a bunch of pranksters who played several tricks during the hearing including streaming porn by Pornhub.

The first few interruptions consisted solely of loud music but the final one that saw porn played on the screen forced the judge to abruptly end the hearing.

The pranksters supposedly joined the Zoom hearing by pretending to be media such as CNN and BBC. It is said that no password was required to join.

Some security experts were dumbfounded that judge Christopher Nash did not require a password for those wanting to hear the trial. However, even with a password enabled, the pranksters could have found a way to join the hearing. This is why firms such as Google have banned the application from their work settings.

The 17-year-old on trial is Graham Ivan Clark. He is one of three people who are facing charges for taking over the accounts of famous Twitter users such as Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Kayne West, and Joe Biden.

The hackers posted tweets that offered to send more bitcoin to those who would first send bitcoin to the hackers' wallets. Clark is being charged as an adult despite being underage and faces ten felony charges.
