I've read an article that was posted yesterday July 14, 2009 regarding Twitter was Hacked by Hacker Croll.
"I’ve been contacted yesterday by the guy who have hacked Twitter. His pseudo his Hacker Croll (here is the initial reference to Hacker Croll, but in French) and explained to me that he was able to access to the various email boxes of the twitter employee
including Evan Williams ones and his wife. This allowed him to have access to all a number of astonishing informations.
He had access to the Paypal, Amazon, Apple , AT&T, MobileMe and Gmail accounts of Evan Williams, Sara Morishige Williams, Margaret Utgoff and Kevin Thau (twitter employees)."(2009, Tomsoft). According to Tomsoft, the hacking was done through google apps using simple to guess password.
The moral story here is to update your password with letters, numbers and special characters such as !@#$%^&*(). Have a safe computing.
Have to go now and it's time for me to change my password :)
