Graham Clark, a 17-year-old tampa, Florida teenager who was the “mastermind” of the Twitter hack on July 15, attended a virtual hearing using video conferencing software Zoom. But the presiding judge in charge of the meeting may be unfamiliar with Zoom, and the video conference does not have a password that allows anyone who knows the meeting ID to attend (the hearing notice is a public record).
As a result, the virtual hearing was interrupted by a number of noises and Pornhub pornographic videos, which eventually had to be terminated early. This interference was specifically known as Zoombomba due to the prevalence of Zoom during the outbreak.
Here’s the emoji pack for attendees after being attacked by a web conference:
Judge Christopher Nash stressed that the password would be required at the next hearing. One of the issues discussed at the hearing was the amount of bail, which Clark set at $750,000, which lawyers argued was unreasonable and asked for a reduction. The judge refused.
