Computer Security – Excerpt – the Twitter Attack

Anatomy of the Twitter Attack. Two days ago I posted about password security.  The article I have linked is how the hacker was able to break into Twitter.  Just from research hackers can determine what your password might be.  One of the things they also mention is that most people use the same password on multiple sites, and I will admit I was doing this myself but am now making changes because I hadn’t thought of it till now.  This is one of the reasons I am posting is to help prevent any of us from being compromised.
