Twitter urges users to change passwords after glitch discovered
Twitter is urging its users to change their passwords after a glitch was discovered that may have stored user passwords in plain text on its internal system.
The company says there's no indication that passwords may have been stolen or misused, but are urging its 330 million users to change their passwords, just in case.
It's not clear how many users were affected by the problem.
We recently found a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log. We fixed the bug and have no indication of a breach or misuse by anyone. As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password. https://t.co/RyEDvQOTaZ— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) May 3, 2018
