re: Twitter Users Vulnerable To SMS Spoofing Attack
Twitter is not going to post this to the public especially with all the negative feedback in regards to security breeches in one form or another rot other major sites. Kind of funny how when pointing out a flaw in the system got routed to a normal support team member. From the various response form people at Twitter it does not really sound like anyone knows what is going on over there. I can not imagine that a hacked account could go that long with out the user noticing fairly quickly.

re: Twitter Users Vulnerable To SMS Spoofing Attack
I clicked on the Rudenberg blog post linked to this story, and there's update that says Twitter has fixed the issue for users of short codes. Nevertheless, it's worrisome that it took the company 109 days from the time notified until they finally dealt with it. Companies don't like it when their vulnerabilities are exposed, but in this case, public disclosure seems to have worked. John Foley, InformationWeek
