Twitter Security Flaw ? How To Fix

from CenterNetworks by Allen Stern

twitterThere is a nasty attack going on the Twitter website currently. I was hit with it along with what appears to be at least thousands of other users. Mike Butcher at Techcrunchuk suggests that the security flaw is only hitting Twitter.com and not the third-party clients. After I was hit, I tried using Seesmic Web and it wouldn?t load so I am guessing if you want to switch, you must follow the instructions below first as my guess is the javascript onmouseover code is somehow killing the API?

It does appear if you have the New Twitter interface (which is like 100 tech bloggers and Twitter friends), you are safe.
