Tim Martin, the NewsBlaze Technology Specialist says there is a new exploit affecting thousands of twitter users.
Twitter updated their website last week and there is now a vulnerability.
This exploit only affects users who are on the twitter.com website, so anyone using a third party website or a software application, is not affected.
Twitter released a basic acknowledgment of the flaw and says that it’s working to correct it. “We’ve identified and are patching an XSS attack; as always, please message @safety (Twitter’s official security account) if you have info regarding such an exploit,” the company wrote in a tweet.
XSS is shorthand for Cross Site Scripting. This Twitter Exploit should be resolved quickly.
