Twitter users told to change passwords after internal leak
May 06, 2018, 16:42
"Out of an abundance of caution, we ask that you consider changing your password on all services where you've used this password". The warning comes after a bug was discovered within Twitter's systems that accidentally kept all user's passwords in plain text.
Twitter wasn't hacked, but it still really wants you to change your password.
Users logging into Twitter for the first time since the bug was revealed will see a popup window informing them of the issue and prompting them to change their password.
The social network reports in a Thursday, May 3 blog post that the bug has been identified and fixed, and that its internal investigation shows no signs of breach or misuse.
The passwords go through a hashing process which uses a function known as bcrypt which replaces the actual password with random characters which are stored in the systems of the company.
Tech expert Toby Shapshak commended Twitter for proactively informing users about the breach. In a statement, Twitter said it has discovered a bug that internally stored the passwords in an unprotected manner. As a solution, the developers have "removed the passwords and are implementing plans to prevent this bug from happening again".
