Twitter Security Flaw

Hey guys, a quick heads-up that Twitter has a massive security flaw that is being exploited and is causing accounts to tweet some dangerous links automatically. (also breaking our sites layout thanks to the Twitter widget)

Mashable has info on the matter saying: “The bug is particularly nasty because it works on mouseover only, meaning pop-ups and third-party websites can open even if you just move your mouse over the offending link.”

For now you shouldn’t visit the Twitter site at all, and only use third party apps like Tweetdeck.
