Actually, it was u/Saidlt with an L, to make it look like an I.

So I noticed.

Quite a clever scam but I am not sure what the end game is.

I wouldn't say they where clever, to be honest. It doesn't take very much intelligence to replace an I with an L — and their code doesn't even actually work (still don't run it!)

The only way it could be clever is if the end-game ain't to hack accounts, but to get everyone afraid and posting about it — which definitely succeeded.
