Twitter explains the onMouseOver bug

As you know or are about to find out Twitter had a security problem this morning called the “onMouseOver” bug. In an official update Twitter explained the problem and what the attack was exactly. The hack was using some cross scripting malicious sites could redirect random users to there malformed sites and tweet likes to them as well. This attack we extremely nasty because simply hover over a link could infect you. Twitter says they had found the hole and patched it up but recent launches (not the “new Twitter”) caused the problem to come up again. Twitter says they were notified about the security problem at 2:54AM Pacific time and fixed the problem by 7:00AM. They also said most of it was for promotion and not malware but you still might want to run a security check on your computer, just to be on the safe side. No account information was compromised in the attack. This just goes to show ANY site big or small can be hacked.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
