    A clever hacker found a way to gain some nice amout of money from Google, Microsoft and IG.

    The idea is really simple. the attacker registered accounts using premium phone number and activated two factor authentication. for each login, the company will send you an sms or a phone call with a verification code.

    The attacker basically request 2FA voice-based tokens for all fake accounts using an automated scripts, placing legitimate phone calls to his service to earn him quite a nice profit.

    As a result, whenever one of these three services would call the account's phone number to send the user their account.

    why didn't think about that :/
