Twitter Hacked, Prompting Flood of Password Reset Emails

Twitter users are reporting a flood of password reset emails hitting their inboxes Thursday after an attack on the company compromised several accounts.

According to TechCrunch, Twitter confirmed that the network has been hit with an attack, but “unintentionally reset passwords of a larger number of accounts” than was necessary.

The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Users reported Thursday morning that they were getting e-mails telling them their account passwords had been changed, offering instructions on how to update their log-in credentials.
