    Did they just announce this today? It took them this long to figure it out or maybe they tried to hide it.

    Well just like the way they have been dealing and breaking into these big IG accounts. Just social engineering cell provider employees and grabbing the number. I use 2FA to show directly on my phone, no text/call. Maybe next get the Titan key or some other hardware solution. Kind of inconvenient, but security, unfortunately, is most of the times pretty inconvenient.

    Hardware token based 2FA is the way to go.

    SMS intercepting is quite hardcore, those guys were quite dedicated to do the deed. I'll kinda doubt that the loot was only what the message says it was.
