Twitter hacker steals 5m accounts’ personal info
A Twitter breach has allowed hackers to find the account names and email addresses associated with five millions of accounts. This includes accounts of people who would rather keep their information pseudonymous, such as whistleblowers and celebrity accounts. "We want to let you know about a vulnerability that allowed someone to enter a phone number or email address into the log-in flow in the attempt to learn if that information was tied to an existing Twitter account, and if so, which specific account", Twitter said in a blog post confirming the attack. It also said there is nothing that users can do to protect their information in this issue, but users should enable two-factor authentication on all accounts to better protect against future breaches.
