Twitter Hacked: Roughly 235M Email Addresses Leaked

  • The hack occurred earlier this week and was reported discovered first by Alan Gal, the co-founder of Israeli security firm Hudson Rock.
  • Gal alerted the public via social media and say the hack resulted in the leak of more information about Twitter users than their email addresses.
  • Twitter has been hacked before, as recently as this past August, but Gal called this “one of the most significant leaks I’ve seen.”
