Just a warning if we have any Twitterers onboard...

I got a similar one in my emails yesterday - deleted it straight away - concerned it did not go into spam.

As mentioned on another thread internal breaches are set to grow.

Twitter said it was a "co-ordinated" attack targeting its employees "with access to internal systems and tools"

This is a bigger issue than anyone is discussing at this point, people taking certain key jobs inside these companies with the sole intention of using them to extract valuable information or content. Combine this with lazy process control and poor training/administration controls and you have a horrible mess which will change people's opinion of the Interweb over the next few years. Especially with all the bullying, fake content and bias it is now impossible to avoid.

I hate to say it anything involving bitcoin automatically gets my radar glowing as well.

We will have to work on some new social medium, the pub and discussion springs to mind. You could even print a catalogue and post it to people.

It would be nice if Twitter honoured the promise to double the money of anyone of fell for this after suffering such a dreadful breach of security.

They will probably give you an extra 8 characters per tweet ?

If it looks too good to be true it must be false.
However the comments from twitter seem to point to a worrying inside job. I'm glad I don't use it.

Apparently it was a social engineering exploit - in other words not a failure of software security but simply Twitter employees being tricked into revealing admin ids and passwords. Very poor show, I expect some people will get fired.

No real threat to the public apart from the extremely rich and extremely gullible, it would take a real dimbo to fall for 'Send me 1,000 bitcoin and I'll send you back 2,000" and highly unlikely to work I would think. 1,000 Bitcoin is worth well over 7 million quid!
