The Zoombombing occurred today when the Thirteenth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida in Tampa held a bail hearing for Graham Clark, who previously pleaded not guilty and is reportedly being held on $725,000 bail. Clark faces 30 felony charges related to the July 15 Twitter attack in which accounts of famous people like Elon Musk, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and Joe Biden were hijacked and used to push cryptocurrency scams. Hackers also accessed direct messages for 36 high-profile account holders.
Today, Judge Christopher Nash ruled against a request to lower Clark’s bail amount. But before that, the judge “shut down the hearing for a short time” when arguments were interrupted by “pornography… foul language and rap music,” Fox 13 reporter Gloria Gomez wrote on Twitter.
“I’m removing people as quickly as I can whenever a disruption happens,” Nash said after one Zoombomber interrupted a lawyer. A not-safe-for-work portion of the hearing was posted by a Twitter user here. The first 47 seconds are safe to watch and includes Nash’s comment about removing Zoombombers, but the rest of the video includes the Pornhub clip that caused Nash to shut down the hearing.
