Twitter Hacking Causes Havok0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:46 pm

Twitter is a social networking and communication site that many people use on a daily basis. It provides a place for people to find out what their friends and their favorite celebrities are doing on the same page, and this is something that has made Twitter one of the most popular social networking sites on the market at the moment. So what happens when Twitter gets hacked?

Twitter announced yesterday that over 250,000 accounts have been hacked in a recent flurry of attacks to the security of the site. The attackers were very sophisticated, gaining access to the usernames, passwords and other said ‘private’ details of these 250,000 people before the threat was contained by the Twitter operators.

According to official statistics twitter has an extremely large user base of over 200 million users, making it one of the largest social networking sites in the world. These 200 million people put their personal details in the hands of the site, thinking that they would be safe with such a reputable company. This was not the case for the 250,000 hacked users.

The site released a statement yesterday saying that they had now reset the passwords of the effected users and they will be forced to change their passwords when they next log on. No announcement has yet been made as to the possible repercussions of this criminal activity, but a Twitter spokesman has recently made a plea to the law enforcement agencies to help them discover the people that are responsible and to bring them to justice.

This hacking has also brought a few other security issues with the social networking site to light. These issues include the fact that malware can be sent through the on-site direct messaging system, and that this can go on to steal details from your computer. The site has also warned that malicious emails have been sent from Twitter imposters and said that people should never click links in these emails as these too may install malware onto your computer.

What do you think of the recent Twitter hacking?
