I'm sending word out to see how easy it is to spoof the "From TweetDeck" thing. (See post below.) In the meantime, let's mull over Weiner's odd mention of his Facebook account being hacked. That remark has always gnawed at me. FB and Twitter and connected; how easy are they to hack?
Real damn easy, as it turns out. See here
. (But for god's sake, don't actually follow those instructions!)
Ignore all those hacking services, facebook hacks and hackers that charge you money for something you can do on your own for free. Hack the password of any of your friends accounts and get their password even as a prank or joke (you may also be interested in trying our How To Hack Twitter Accounts tutorial)
Twitter says that they plugged a similar hole circa 2009, but the hacker who wrote the above says that his script was updated as of "6/4/2011." Around the same time, a phishing scam snagged the passwords of several notables. Those passwords were reset -- but only
if the victims knew that there was a problem. One can easily see a situation in which passwords were held in reserve.
