Nothing seems to be secure enough anymore, when Twitter joins the many online communities that have had their servers breached. Limited information on 250,000 accounts were stolen in the recent attack. All compromised passwords have been reset and the affected users notified, but still quite a big mess for Twitter. Apparently the hack exploited a flaw in Java. Source Somehow I can't seem to understand how Java seems to be in pretty much everything when it's basically full of flaws (possibly due to the wide spread use, it's exploited to the max).
