    Twitter Hack

    Twitter hacked? Not really. Here's the scoop. - CSMonitor.com

    This backdoor, which Twitter patched up within a few hours, was not a hack, per se. Hacking involves breaking into another person's computer. Instead, this bug exploited JavaScript, one of the most popular online programming languages. "Due to an error in the way that Twitter processed messages, it was possible to include JavaScript in tweets, and that JavaScript could then do more or less anything, including sending more JavaScript-containing tweets," explains Ars Technica.
    MOD: Please move to off topic.
