Twitter Service Tweetgif Hacked

It isn't as big as last week's password leaks, but small-time Twitter app was hacked today, releasing 10,000 Tweetgif accounts into the wild.

Because Tweetgif is an OAuth-based app, though, this means no Twitter passwords were leaked — just its OAuth tokens, which grant access to the Tweetgif app and allow users to post GIFs to Twitter. If you used the app, all you need to do is head into Twitter's settings and revoke access to the app — no massive password changes required. Hit the link to read more. [PC World]


    It was actually 8139 accounts - you can search for account handles that have been leaked here:

    Its pretty basic, but strictly client side.
