250,000 passwords stolen in Twitter hack
« on: February 02, 2013, 10:56 »
Twitter has become the latest victim in a number of high-profile cyber-attacks against media companies, saying hackers may have gained access to information on 250,000 of its more than 200 million active users.

The social media giant said in a blog posting that earlier this week it detected attempts to gain access to its user data. It shut down one attack moments after it was detected.
