Twitter Hole Open for Hackers

"Twitter has a hole in its coding which potentially exposes millions of accounts to malicious hackers. A security expert based in Florida says he has found a security flaw in Adobe Flash which could allow hackers to see the passwords of Twitter users.

Senior security analyst Mike Bailey of Foreground Security in Orlando says he found a problem in the way Twitter’s website is coded which could allow hackers to exploit a well known vulnerability in Flash.

Adobe has known about the exploit since it was originally found in 2006 and has taken steps to inform programmers on how to handle it. Adobe has also posted warnings for webmasters who use Flash however many do not know about them."
