Government Hacked Twitter

Blog Post

Did you get a warning that your Twitter account was hacked in the last few days?  According to warnings the popular social network sent out, some accounts have been hacked by "state-sponsored hackers."

According to the letter sent by Twitter, the hackers might have been targeting email addresses, IP addresses and phone numbers.  Very little is known about the attacks, including how successful the hack attempts have been or how many accounts were targeted.  And while they said that the attacks were "state-sponsored" they haven't said what government is suspected.
