Just last week at the TED conference in Long Beach California, Celebrity Ashton Kutcher had his Twitter account hacked, this according to reporters over at Threat Post. As my readers may recall I posted about FireSheep back in November of last year. It is a FireFox plug in that allows a hacker to intercept social networking session over un-secured wireless connections.
A sample of the messages posted to Kutchers' account are:
"Ashton, you've been Punk'd. This account is not secure. Dude, where's my SSL?"
"P.S. This is for those young protesters around the world who deserve not to have their Facebook & Twitter accounts hacked like this. #SSL"
