Twitter Plagued by Heroic Bug

Tweetdeck XSS

— Andreas Lindh (@addelindh) June 11, 2014

“Log out of Tweetdeck, it’s an emergency,” is what every social media manager is shouting right now, on Twitter. These, unfortunately, are not suicidal declarations of self-realization. There is a bug!

A newly discovered vulnerability in TweetDeck for Chrome is allowing attackers to remotely execute javascript code through an unpatched vulnerability. Users have reported seeing random pop-up windows reading “Yo!”

Random, unsolicited, distracting messages? With no context?? ON TWITTER????? Keep up the good work, bug.
