Account Takeover Attacks Cause Chaos at Twitter Headquarters

We know that the primary problem with Twitter was account tools and their use to take over many types of high profile accounts. In an article that Phishlabs posted yesterday, Stacy Shelley brings up yet other aspects of things that we can consider, and these are the experts of Phishing themselves we’re dealing with here.

Security Now! indicated that it was a possible payoff, and this is linked here in Phishlab’s article. In some text of the article, it states:

Tuesday’s Twitter hack is a high profile demonstration of threat actors targeting and using social media accounts as part of their scams. Security leaders
should expect questions about it. Various corporate stakeholders including senior executives and board members will want to know the risk this incident
poses. They will also need to know what, if any, additional steps are being taken to mitigate the risk. 
 
When a social media platform is compromised in this way, accounts can be taken over regardless of how social media users authenticate and protect their
accounts. Enterprises can mitigate the risk by focusing on detection and response.

I always look at my twitter anyhow, and I know the new Braille2000 account is only ran by me. For more from Phishlabs, check out the article: Account Takeover Attacks Cause Chaos @ Twitter and I hope you enjoy this revelation.

There is more to this article including bullet points. Feel free to check it out.
