Anyone with a Twitter account might be interested in this..even though you guys more than likely know about it already..I thought there might be some who don't..hence the post here.

I just hope they don't get my Myspace and Friendster accounts

Seriously though, I had no idea people still used Twitter for anything other than porn

Porn? Shit, I must be living a really sheltered life or something..never really seem it used to that, but it doesn't surprise me one bit. Tumblr..now that's a completely different story. :badger:

Re: More than 32 million Twitter credentials reportedly hacked

I'm so glad I don't use Twitter or LinkedIn or MySpace or FaceBook or any of that junk.
I just heard that Microsoft bought LinkedIn. So yeah, they want your personal data.

It's typically done with smart hacking algorithms. And if it takes a long time, they might just run them at night and go to sleep and wake up to the mayhem. Or they even run them for days or weeks.

Or then again, they might just hack one server and get the lot in one go.

Twitter say they weren't hacked. If the accounts were compromised it was malware in the browsers.

That's true.

But generally speaking, somebody could get that amount of profile data with just one hacking..you wouldn't necessarily need to go and hack a load of computers, it could conceivably be done in one go, if you knew where the data was stored and could get onto the private network in the first place..that was the point I was making.

Re: More than 32 million Twitter credentials reportedly hacked

My account got hacked. I only made it to test a Twitter feed gadget for Wordpress. Had not logged in for a year, but the inactive Wordpress page still exists, so I'm pretty sure it was a glitch in Wordpress that got hacked..
