Friends, my twitter account has been hijacked and is now spewing crap. I've reported it and I've done all I can to get it back but I'm still waiting... https://daniel.haxx.se/blog/2020/11/16/i-lost-my-twitter-account/
@bagder crap :| is there a chance that more stuff has been compromised (like for example your github account)?
@guenther they're not connected in any way so I don't think there's any reason to suspect that this will expand beyond the twitter account. Feels like problematic enough! =-(
@bagder if you don't know how someone got your twitter password, wouldn't it be reasonable to assume your computer has been compromised?
@guenther I don't think so, based on the way the account was taken over and other (lack of) traces. And I do have 2fa on all the important accounts anyway so "just" compromising my computer isn't enough.
@bagder super scary, this happening to you, b/c I cannot imagine you had a trivial password on that account.
@bagder The "giving back" hacks from a few months ago which used support access bypassed 2FA. It's plausible.
@bagder Your Twitter account is now switched to private, the (Elon) avatar is gone and the name is changed to Badger. The illicit Tweets are gone and the last Tweet is from 14th November.
