PlugwalkJoe Does the Perp Walk

One day after last summer's mass-hack of Twitter, KrebsOnSecurity wrote that 22-year-old British citizen Joseph "PlugwalkJoe" O'Connor appeared to have been involved in the incident. When the Justice Department last week announced O'Connor's arrest and indictment, his alleged role in the Twitter compromise was well covered in the media.

But most of the coverage so far seem to have overlooked the far more sinister criminal charges in the indictment, which involve an underground scene wherein young men turn to extortion, sextortion, SIM swapping, death threats and physical attacks -- all in a bid to seize control over highly-prized social media accounts.
