In a swift response to a recent hack that targeted the Shiba Inu community, Ragnar Shib, one of Shiba Inu’s community admins, has successfully regained control of his compromised Telegram account. The hack had exploited his handle to promote fraudulent giveaway offers, posing a risk to the SHIB Army.

Shiba Inu Community Finds Security

Ragnar Shib took to the X platform to reassure the Shiba Inu community of the restoration of his Telegram account’s security. In a tweet on Thursday, Ragnar announced, “My account in Telegram is secure again.”

To provide additional confidence to the SHIB Army, Ragnar disclosed that he had moved his Telegram account to a new device, eliminating any potential threats stemming from the previous exploit on his former phone. In addition to this precaution, he strengthened his security measures by changing his password to more robust ones. Ragnar also implemented two-factor authentication for added protection, extending these security upgrades to his other accounts, including those on the X platform.

Furthermore, Ragnar emphasized the importance of robust security practices for Shiba Inu enthusiasts across social media platforms. He encouraged the community to regularly change their access codes and passwords as a proactive measure to safeguard their accounts.

The Anatomy of the Hack

Curious about the nature of the hack, a concerned community member sought insights from Ragnar to help others stay vigilant. In response, Ragnar shared a link to a Medium post titled “How hackers are getting access to 1000s of Telegram accounts.”

The Medium post, authored by researcher Giuliano Giacaglia, delves into various tactics employed by scammers to compromise Telegram accounts. These tactics include SIM swapping, brute force attacks targeting four-digit PINs, SMS flooding attacks, and voicemail exploits.

It’s worth noting that the post is four years old, and Telegram has since addressed some of the vulnerabilities mentioned. Nevertheless, the recent incident serves as a stark reminder that account hijacking remains a threat, emphasizing the importance of ongoing vigilance and security awareness within the cryptocurrency community.

The Shiba Inu team’s rapid response to the hack demonstrates their commitment to safeguarding the interests of their community and underscores the importance of proactive security measures in the ever-evolving crypto landscape.
