News Tech: Twitter’s former head of security has blown the whistle on the social media site, stating that the company’s security policies are flawed and that it deceived the US government and Elon Musk about its vulnerability.

According to Zatko, a well-known hacker known as “Mudge,” the social networking platform has “severe, egregious faults” in security, privacy, and content moderation. It also accuses Twitter officials of misleading to federal authorities about the company’s financial condition.

Peiter Zatko, Twitter’s former security chief, has filed a whistleblower complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Department of Justice. CBS News obtained a redacted copy of the 84-page dossier.

The paper also mentions the Elon Musk-Twitter feud, accusing Twitter of “lying about bots to Elon Musk.”

Agrawal allegedly replied to the allegations in an email addressed to staff, which CNN reporter Donie O’Sullivan shared on Twitter.

According to the letter, “We are analysing the redacted assertions that have been released, but what we have seen thus far is a misleading narrative plagued with contradictions and falsehoods, and provided without critical context.”

Musk announced his takeover attempt for Twitter on April 14, seeking to purchase 100% of the company’s shares for USD 54.20 per share. While the company’s board was originally dubious of the transaction, it consented to the USD 44 billion purchase when Musk revealed a finance package that included USD 21 billion of his own money. However, Musk stated in mid-May that he was putting the acquisition “on hold” until it was shown that less than 5% of the platform’s daily users are phoney.

Musk formally announced his withdrawal from the transaction in early July, but Twitter sued the billionaire for breach of contract, seeking a judge to compel the Tesla CEO to complete it. The lawsuit will go to trial for five days on October 17th.
