UNKNOWN ACCOUNTS CLAIMS ARE BASELESS AND ARE MADE TO GET DOWNLOAD MALWARE: TELEGRAM
This week the attention of the crypto community was taken by an anonymous person who said they would expose the wrongdoings of prominent crypto influencers and high-level projects within the crypto space.
The suspect, who uses the username "Adyingnobody" on Twitter, said they would "split the whole community apart" by posting Telegram messages they received abusing the alleged messaging app. On the line, they say they have evidence of illegal activities ranging from fraud and other areas involving murder, theft and sexual assault.
Due to the intensity of the claims, an anonymous person captured the interest of crypto Twitter, ranging from zero to 36,000 followers overnight. The Ethereum wallet address someone posted on his Twitter bio also received 43 transactions which could be tips from those wishing to get a sneak peek on what they plan to disclose.
Despite the allegations, concerned members of the public wrote on social media platform Twitter reminding others to be careful and cautious while confronting the suspect. Twitter user Kapluie said that when we remove their shocking claims, the link below is "downloading a zip file" and "signing a contract." According to a Twitter user, this is "an unusual sound thing" and it is recommended that you do not download files from any links.
Twitter user Cryptonator1337 also stated that, although the claims may be true, the public needs to be aware of any files from an anonymous account. Post to Twitter:
With the exception of the two, Twitter user Zugged also noted that there were no such acts mentioned by Adyingnobody, calling the action "a social boom." Zugged shared a link to the Telegram vulnerability record and highlighted that there was nothing similar to what Adyingnobody said he had exploited.
Telegram has officially responded to the allegations. The message announced that the action may be an attempt to "cause users to download malware":
Cointelegraph accessed Adyingnobody and received no response.
Meanwhile, the social media platform is accused of losing $ 1 billion in crypto fraud by 2021. About half of those who reported being cheated reported that it started with ads, posts, or messages from social media. This includes Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp and Telegram.
