Twitter fixes cross-site scripting flaw
Computerworld, By Jeremy Kirk
A serious security flaw was apparently found on Twitter on Tuesday but was quickly fixed.
The problem was a cross-site scripting flaw, wrote Georg Wicherski of Kaspersky Lab on the company's blog.
Cross-site scripting is an attack in which a script drawn from another Web site is allowed to run that shouldn't, which can be used to steal information or potentially cause other malicious code to run.
