Twitter #Hacked

theodp writes “Earlier this week, hackers gained access to Twitter’s internal systems and stole information, compromising 250,000 Twitter accounts before the breach was stopped. Reporting the incident on the company’s official blog, Twitter’s manager of network security did not specify the method by which hackers penetrated its system, but mentioned vulnerabilities related to Java in Safari and Firefox, and echoed Homeland Security’s advisory that users disable Java in their browsers. Sure, blame everything on Larry Ellison. Looks like bad things do happen in threes — Twitter’s report comes on the heels of disclosures of hacking attacks on the WSJ and NY Times.”
