“Social network says a bug exposed accounts to email, phone number leaks
Twitter is emailing users whose account security was compromised by a bug last week, exposing email addresses and phone numbers linked to “a small number of accounts.”
In a blog post, the company said that fewer than 10,000 active accounts were affected.
A bug affected Twitter’s password recovery systems for about 24 hours last week, according to the emails sent by the company’s security team. One such email said that Twitter learned the email address linked to the user’s account had been viewed by another account.”
