Twitter infected by Rival site!

Apparently it has been said that the worm was aimed at promoting “STALKDAILY” a Twitter rival site.

“No passwords, phone numbers, or other sensitive information was compromised as part of these attacks”, stated the Twitter Blog.

Twitter administrators are



currently working in the back-end to improve on the site security and still battling off attacks. Despite the attack, Twitter is now up and running.
