 Twitter claims to find vulnerabilities recommended 330 million users immediately change the password.


Twitter chief technology officer Parag Agrawal (ParagAgrawal) wrote in a blog article that the company recently found a vulnerability in its Hashing processing, causing the password to be stored in the internal log of the Twitter in the form of ordinary text. Hashing is the process of converting passwords into random strings. Agrawal wrote that the vulnerability caused the password to be written into the internal log and then completed the hashing process. Twitter said the vulnerability was found inside the company, and there was no reason to believe that anyone outside the company could get unshielded passwords. In any case, the company is recommending users to change their passwords on Twitter and update other accounts using the same password as Twitter. Agrawal ended this article with we are very sorry for what happened. He wrote: we recognize and appreciate the trust you have given and are committed to winning this trust every day. Twitter said only that the flaw was discovered only recently, and its spokesman declined to comment on the matter.
