A virtual court hearing was held Tuesday for Graham Clark, the 17-year-old accused of masterminding the July 15 hacking of the Twitter accounts of Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, Barack Obama, and others. His bound court hearing was temporarily cut short after infiltrators entered the call playing porn and loud music.
Clark oversaw the hacking of several prominent Twitter pages and posted requests for Bitcoin deposits — he grossed over $100,000 from the hack.
The Tuesday hearing was to agree on a bond. Clark’s lawyer was in the middle of requesting a reduction from the current $750,000 bond when the intruders began playing the disruptive and obscene content.
These interruptions posed as journalists to join the call but quickly deployed their destruction tactics. Dubbed ‘Zoombombers,’ unwanted Zoom guests have become a sort of trend over the last few months as classes and companies have taken to the video calling app to conduct class and business.

The hearing was resumed about ten minutes, as reported by the Daily Mail. Hackers were able to play the videos and music as there were no protections against guests unmuting themselves and sharing their screens.
Clark is facing 30 felony charges including 17 counts of communications fraud, 11 counts of fraudulent use of personal information, and one count each of organized fraud of more than $5,000 and accessing computers or electronic devices without authority, according to the Daily Mail.
