    So Twitter just recently had some downtime, and now they're sending out password reset emails. Sure sounds like they got hacked to me.

      @cocoasamurai Best part of that post? The second-to-last paragraph that basically admits it's because they were running Java.

        @eridius @cocoasamurai That’s what makes me wonder — if Java applets are notoriously vulnerable, does that say anything of Web apps written in Clojure?

          @adiabatic @cocoasamurai Java applets are insecure because they're running untrusted code and have sandbox exploits. Web apps only deal with untrusted data, not untrusted code.

              @oluseyi Did you read the blog post? That's not at all true. Twitter themselves were attacked, not Twitter users.

                  @oluseyi Again, read the blog post. They _admitted_ to being attacked and having 250k user credentials comrpomised.

                        @oluseyi Reading comprehension fail. The "unusual access patterns" means Twitter's infrastructure was being attacked. User data was compromised as a result of the attack, not as a result of individual users being attacked.

                            @oluseyi I'm not going to debate this with you anymore. You're simply wrong. And as a user who had his password reset, I can guarantee you I wasn't individually attacked or had my machines compromised in any way.

                                @oluseyi Whoops, you just crossed the line into personal insults. I'm not sure why you're being so defensive, but congratulations on being my first ever ADN mute.

                                          @eridius @oluseyi I just tapped unfollow instead of mute. It’s been coming and the time was right.

                                            @mgrimes @eridius @cocoasamurai true, but not all Java applets out there have been rewritten yet. Plus, I’d have to spin up a VM with that gunk installed to back-engineer the ones on, say, http://yudkowsky.net/rational/bayes — not my idea of a fun weekend
