A TweetDeck Bug Gives Access to Others
TweetDeck Bug Exposes Other Users' Accounts!
On Friday a Twitter user tweeted "Hey @Tweetdeck A bug in your software has given me access to hundreds of accounts. #YouShouldLookIntoThat /cc @Twitter" and then he posted a picture of his TweetDeck app filled with many other users' accounts icons. He also proved that he was capable of tweeting from another user's account. Once Twitter was notified of this they immediately took it down and apologized for the issue.
This article interested me because I am a Twitter user and the fact that my account could have been accessible to other users is a little disturbing. I hope this bug is fixed by now so that I can use my Twitter safely again!
