Twitter releases memo warning media of hacking attacks

Twitter releases memo warning media of attacks
 
 

Following the compromise of the Assosiated Press's Twitter account last week that enabled the account to tweet false bombings in the White House, Twitter is now asking the media, particularly news organizations, to secure their accounts for good.


 

Due to recent hacking attacks on several high profile Twitter accounts, Twitter has sent out a memo to media and news organizations today. The memo warns of potential hacking incidents and suggests action steps that users can take to protect themselves from being compromised.

It seems the recent hacking incidents are the result of phishing attacks focused on corporate email accounts. The Twitter memo, published in Buzzfeed, gives several pointers that companies can employ to strengthen their account security.

Companies can employ a variety of standard security practices for passwords. These include changing current passwords and using passwords at least 20 characters long to make it more difficult for attackers to hack accounts. Users can also choose passwords using randomly generated characters and words. It may also be a wise choice never to email company account passwords at all.

Twitter also recommends changing passwords that email accounts reset and to apply two-factor account authentication. If necessary, companies can use one computer solely devoted to Twitter use. This is to minimize risks from surfing the web and accessing email. This way, even if email account security is breached by phishing attacks, the companies’ social media accounts will still be safe.


In the memo, Twitter stated they believe the attacks will continue and therefore calls on companies to be more security-focused and protect their accounts.
