Today Anonymous hackers leaked more than 55.000 hacked twitter accounts username and password through Pastebin. It was very shocking to see such a massive number of Twitter accounts are hacked. Also celebrity accounts are hacked.
‘The micro blogging platform is aware of this hack and was taking necessary actions to save those people’s account from malicious activity’, said a Twitter insider.
It was huge, 55.000+ accounts has been hacked and it wasn’t possible to share such a huge pile of usernames and passwords in a single paste. So it took the hackers five Pastebin pages to leak the data. This hack is just an alert to other millions of Twitter users that they could be hacked anytime.
Unbelievable that Twitter isn’t taking any necessary steps to keep its users data safe. Even after encountering a huge number of hacks in the past including celebrities account. All they need to do is to add a password strength checker during signup while changing passwords. And guide the users to create a strong password. That could save a lot of users frustration.
To check if your account is hacked, go through this five Pastebin pages ( page 1 | page 2 | page 3 | page 4| page 5 ) and to find your account easily just by using the find feature in your browser (CTRL+F) and type your email id.
