Twitter wants you to change your passwords now

Bug in system, Twitter asks users to change password

Out of abundance of caution, Twitter is advising that users change their passwords on all services where you've used the password. The social media site says all 330 million of its users should change their passwords. Twitter has posted a tweet in which they stated the fixing of this bug and suggested to change the password on all services where the password has been used.

The chief technology officer of the company, Parag Agarwal, said in a blog post that a bug has been found out recently which had stored passwords in an internal log.

In an email sent to users, the social network explained that it had fixed the bug in question, and that its internal investigation "shows no indication of breach or misuse by anyone". "I should not have said we didn't have to share". While you are it, you should opt for the two-factor authentication since it is safer than just the password.

The company wouldn't provide an exact number of the passwords that were stored without encryption in the log.

Independent security expert Graham Cluley said: "It's quite encouraging that Twitter both found the problem internally, and informed its users quickly and transparently".

The company said it removed the non-encrypted passwords from its system, and is working to avoid such an issue happening again. Hashing of passwords is a common industry practice.

Shortly later, as negative comments toward Twitter and Agrawal continued, Kaminsky tweeted: "It's genuinely exhausting seeing Twitter get raged against for making a very, very hard call, correctly". Twitter reported that it was not a security breach as nobody was able to access the log where the plain text passwords were stored. "However, it is advised to change your password, because no one is aware so far how long that logging had been in place". And they assure us for the safety of our personal information as well.
