A 17-year-old boy from Florida and two others were charged Friday with temporarily gaining control of the Twitter accounts of several famous people. The accounts belonged to former President Barack Obama, former Vice President Joe Biden, Tesla founder Elon Musk and others.
佛罗里达州一名17岁的男孩以及另外两人周五被指控短暂控制了几位名人的推特账户。这些账户属于前总统巴拉克·奥巴马、前副总统乔·拜登以及特斯拉创始人埃隆·马斯克等人。
Florida state attorney Andrew Warren said suspect Graham Ivan Clark is "a 17-year-old kid who apparently just graduated high school." He added, "But make no mistake, this was not an ordinary 17-year-old. This was a highly sophisticated attack on a magnitude not seen before." He called Clark the "mastermind" of the attack.
佛罗里达州检查官安德鲁·沃伦表示,嫌犯格雷厄姆·伊文·克拉克是“一名17岁的孩子,刚刚高中毕业。”他补充说:“但是请不要误解,他可不是一个普通的17岁小孩。这是一次高度复杂的攻击,其攻击强度前所未有。”他称克拉克是这次攻击的“策划者。”

Clark was arrested Friday in Tampa, Florida. He will be charged as an adult under Florida law.
克拉克周五在佛罗里达州坦帕市被捕。根据佛罗里达州法律,他将以成人标准受审。

Federal officials from California also charged Mason Sheppard, a 19-year-old Briton, and Nima Fazeli, 22, of Orlando, Florida in the nationwide investigation into the attack.
来自加利福尼亚州的联邦官员在对这起网络攻击的全国性调查中,还指控了佛罗里达州奥兰多市一名19岁的英国人梅森·谢帕德以及22岁的尼玛·法泽利。

Warren told reporters at a news conference Friday, "Clark hacked into the Twitter accounts of famous people and celebrities, but they were not the primary victims." He said Clark took "over $100,000 in Bitcoin in just one day." Bitcoin is a form of digital money not supported by any government but exchanged by many people online.
沃伦在周五的新闻发布会上对记者表示:“克拉克入侵了名人的推特账户,但是这些名人并非受害者。”他说克拉克在短短一天之内就获得了价值超过10万美元的比特币。比特币是一种不受任何政府支持的数字货币,但是很多人在网上交易这种货币。

On July 15, the hackers took control and sent out false tweets from the accounts of Musk, Obama, and Biden. Others included Amazon's Jeff Bezos, Microsoft's Bill Gates and billionaires Michael Bloomberg and Warren Buffett. Entertainers Kanye West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, were also hacked.
7月15日,黑客控制了马斯克、奥巴马以及拜登的推特账户,并发布了虚假的推文。其他人还包括亚马逊公司的杰夫·贝佐斯、微软公司的比尔·盖茨以及亿万富豪迈克尔·布隆伯格和沃伦·巴菲特。艺人坎耶·韦斯特和他的妻子金·卡戴珊的账户也被黑客入侵。

The tweets offered to send $2,000 for every $1,000 sent to an anonymous Bitcoin address. Over $100,000 in bitcoins were sent to the address before Twitter could disable the accounts and removed the posts.
这些推文表示,每向匿名比特币地址发送1000美元,就会得到2000美元的回报。在推特禁用这些账户并删除推文之前,价值超过10万美元的比特币被发送给该比特币地址。

On Thursday, Twitter said in an update that the hackers "targeted a small number of employees through a phone spear phishing attack" to gain access to passwords and other credentials. The social media company said the attackers then used the access to target 130 accounts, sent Tweets from 45, accessed direct messages from 36, and downloaded data from seven others.
推特在周四的最新消息中表示,黑客“通过电话鱼叉式网络钓鱼攻击少数员工”以获得有权限进入的密码和其它凭据。这家社交媒体公司表示,攻击者随后利用该权限进入了130个账户,并从45个账户发布了推文,访问了36人的收件箱,并下载了另外7人的数据。

Florida officials said Clark is facing 30 felony charges. Twitter said it would provide a more detailed report later "given the ongoing law enforcement investigation."
佛罗里达州官员表示,克拉克面临30项重罪指控。推特公司表示,“鉴于司法调查正在进行当中”,该公司会在稍后提供更详细的报告。
