The most secure social network(in my opinion) has been hacked,meaning that 25% of their users(250K) have had their info put out for the world to see.Meanwhile,people have their privacy settings have been changed by Facebook’s Social Graph.Meaning that their data has been available to the public for a few weeks.(I have been really negative with these stories.).
This week, we detected unusual access patterns that led to us identifying unauthorized access attempts to Twitter user data. We discovered one live attack and were able to shut it down in process moments later. However, our investigation has thus far indicated that the attackers may have had access to limited user information — usernames, email addresses, session tokens and encrypted/salted versions of passwords — for approximately 250,000 users.
As a precautionary security measure, we have reset passwords and revoked session tokens for these accounts. If your account was one of them, you will have recently received (or will shortly) an email from us at the address associated with your Twitter account notifying you that you will need to create a new password. Your old password will not work when you try to log in to Twitter.
People on Twittter have been speculating that only accounts from 2006-2007 have been hacked,or at least released the notification.It looks like the hackers did not target anyone or that those users were most vulnerable to the type of attack.(But that is unlikely.)
They also said in the blog post that(after the usual stuff)that it’s was recommending that the U.S Departmant Of Homeland Security’s advisory on disabling Java(Java is not having a good week,is it?).
Is there a problem?Have I done something wrong?Do you have a suggestion? Or you like it to comment because you like it?.Or you like it so much for you to like it.Well,if you said yes to any of those do the action.
