Twitter is save again.

Twitter just rolled out a fix for the XSS attack that got wide spread attention earlier today. The XSS based flaw allowed users to display pop-up messages and web sites on rollover over links on Twitter.

Graham Cluley's blog collected several exploits including a hack that involved the Twitter account of Sara Brown, the wife of the UK Prime Minister. Nothing is save on the web. Always be aware what is happening when you surf the web and have your anti-virus and web security software up to date.
