Lessons Learned from the Exposure of 1.5 Million Twitter Accounts

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Former Napster employee and serial entrepreneur Wayne Chang recently discovered a security glitch on Twitter that had left 1.5 million support tickets exposed, complete with names and passwords. Chang worked with the team at Twitter to resolve the problem but the story is a lesson in why customers should be proactive with particular sensitivities to the risks in using Twitter or any general, free service.It also shows the benefits of working with services that use third party support programs such as Zendesk that track issues in case a flaw is discovered.In a blog post filed this week, Chang wrote that he has always taken it as an interest to discover security vulnerabilities in online systems. Back in the 1990s he mixed in a group that wrote their own software to discover security flaws. One of his fellow hackers went by the name “napster.” That was Shawn Fanning, who went on to found Napster. Chang joined the company in 1998. Those Gatsby days are now only stories but the spirit of discovering massive security flaws is still an adventure for many. A few weeks ago, Chang realized he had a big one on his hands when he found himself peering into the Twitter customer support network. With a few manipulations he had gained access to Twitter’s support network – a community with more people in it than most any online service.Here’s what happened. Chang received a reply to a support ticket that he had filed for one of his business accounts. The support desk needed more information. He opened the Twitter dashboard for open tickets. He did not see his ticket listed. Thinking nothing of it he looked at an old ticket and made the discovery he was looking at the account of someone else:I looked at an old ticket that was listed and back to the new email. I manipulated a few data fields, hoping it would work. As soon as I pressed enter, the ticket I was looking for showed up. Great, must be a temporary display glitch on my account. In any case, I was happy to be able to work with the ticket. I tried to reply to the ticket on the system. Strange, it didn’t attach my message. That’s when I noticed the account name didn’t match mine – it said @null instead of my business account name. Maybe I wasn’t supposed to see this. I finagled around with the data fields and suddenly I was staring at someone else’s support ticket — one that showed his password (he had wrote it as part of his ticket). This is Not Good. Tags:#cloud#security Related Posts After review he found a mixture of different information that was revealed. It included”Account passwordsContact information, including addresses and phone numbersAPI keys and consumer secret keysVIP requests, related to movie starsBrand impersonations, large multinational companies wanting certain accounts deactivated/removedAnd 419 scams.The attention at that point turned to Zendesk, which Twitter uses for its support desk. Chang set up a number of accounts. It looked like the problem only affected a subset of users on Twitter.center_img This is where services like Twitter fall short. It became a project just to find the right person to contact. This is a problem that I have personally felt in the past few weeks when trying to get someone from Tweetdeck to help me get my columns back. I gave up and now use Seesmic.Twitter is now working through the issues so they can be better contacted in case of security issues of critical importance.But this all brings up a classic problem. General, free services are excellent for fostering transparent, rich communities. But larger enterprises are anything but open. They do want to be more transparent but security by its nature is designed to be a barrier. Barriers by definition are solid blocks. It’s difficult to marry those concepts unless the ultimate security is put into place.And that’s trust networks.What is needed are better identity systems to avoid any kind of password problems. Google Apps Marketplace maintains a policy for single sign on. That makes it viable to offer apps that can help people work in a secure ecosystem. Twitter is still of magnified importance but to use it enterprise managers would be wise to modernize its identity systems to avoid the worst of all outcomes.And that’s the spectre of stolen corporate accounts. Once that happens all semblance of trust is lost. That wastes valuable time which takes ages to rebuild.(Image source: BostonInnovation) Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting alex williams 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more

Paul and Harden hope bond translates to success on court

first_imgNBA: New Thunder recruits Anthony, George try to lure Wade to OKC View comments Harden, who finished second to Russell Westbrook in MVP voting last season, is thrilled about the opportunity to pair with such a dynamic player. He believes Paul’s skillset will make things easier for him.“It’s a relief,” he said. “But it’s not just anybody that I’m getting off the ball giving it to. I’m giving the ball to somebody that can do the same thing I can do even better.”Paul is a nine-time All-Star who has averaged 18.7 points, 9.9 assists, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 steals over his 12-year career, though he has been dogged with criticism in recent years for failing to help the Clippers get out of the second round of the playoffs. Los Angeles reached the postseason in each of Paul’s six seasons with the team, but the Clippers were eliminated in the first round three times and in theWestern Conference semifinals three other times.He readily admits that his only motivation for opting in for the last year of his contract so the Clippers could deal him was to chase a title.“I came here with one purpose, one goal in mind and that’s to win a championship,” he said. “And the cool part is being here with a guy like James that has those same aspirations.”ADVERTISEMENT Since the trade, some have questioned how the two point guards will coexist in Houston. General manager Daryl Morey has no worries about that and said he doesn’t have to see the pair in a game to know that he’s right.“They’ve been playing in gyms around the country and out of the country all summer,” he said. “Just from my watching it and coach (Mike D’Antoni) has watched it even more than me — we’re 100 percent certain it’s going to work.”D’Antoni, who enters his second season in Houston, said the three have had plenty of conversations about how they’ll play together and what it will look like. He knows there will be growing pains along the way, but he believes the fact that both players want it to work will go a long way.“We have little things to work out but, again, both of them are very willing to do whatever it takes to be the best that we can be,” D’Antoni said. “Now we’ve just got to figure out what that is and keep improving on it all year.”Harden ranked second in the league with 29.1 points per game and first with 11.2 assists. He had 64 double-doubles last year after combining for just 67 in the first seven seasons of his career, and he notched 22 triple-doubles after getting just nine total before last season.His brilliant season was marred by a poor performance in Game 6 of the conference semifinals when the Rockets were eliminated with a 39-point loss to the Spurs. Harden didn’t attempt a shot until halfway through the second quarter of the blowout and finished with 10 points to tie a season low.He denies that he paid any attention to the criticism he received after that loss, asking, “What did they say?” about the naysayers.But he doesn’t deny that he should have done more in that game and vows to do just that this season.“Obviously I played terrible,” he said. “It didn’t end in a championship so that’s frustrating. (I’ve) just got to get better. Won’t blame anybody but myself.” Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

360i Named Adweek Agency 3.0

first_imgWhat is an Agency 3.0? According to Adweek it’s an agency that has masterfully adapted to the fast-paced digital marketplace. This week, 360i was honored to be named one of twelve agencies on Adweek’s Agencies 3.0 list.In their recognition of 360i, Adweek writes, “A granddaddy among digital agencies—it started as a search specialty shop in 1998—360i has adapted to the changing needs of the marketplace as it heads into its 20th year. After merging in 2005 with New York agency Innovation Interactive, founded by Bryan Wiener, 360i dived heavily into social once its bona fides as an SEO specialist were cemented. Then in 2011, it added brand strategy as an integral part of its offerings. Last year, the shop evolved into a full-service media operation following its merger with fellow Dentsu Aegis Network agency Vizeum, but never abandoned the tools it learned and developed along the way. The end result is what CEO Sarah Hofstetter dubs ‘alchemy:’ 360i’s broad offerings to deliver a deeper execution of the interplay of paid, earned and owned media.” In the expansive and ever evolving ad industry landscape, our shop looks different year after year. To us, this is what an agency should look like in the digital era. Congrats to our internal teams and client partners that made this honor possible.Read more about the acknowledgement in Adweek.last_img read more

9 Ways to Save For Travel You Haven’t Thought Of

first_img Post navigation Sebrin Elms is a twenty-something newlywed with two kitties and a serious obsession with travel. She started her blog, The Clumsy Traveler, in anticipation of a 3-month long honeymoon around the world. When she came back, she wasn’t ready to stop writing and traveling!

You’d be surprised to learn that there are a ton of ways to save, some of which you might have completely forgotten about or haven’t even dreamed of!I’ve compiled just 9 ways you can save for your trip abroad. Maybe it’s ways to tighten your budget or perhaps it includes making a little money on the side. Whatever suits your needs, saving for your dream trip isn’t too far off!1. Get Back to the BasicsCreate a budget of everything you spend monthly?¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿. Now, highlight everything you NEED in red (like food, rent, transportation) and highlight everything you WANT in green (shopping, salon treatments, etc). Try to cut out those things that are highlighted in green, or at least until after your trip. You’ll not only learn how to live simply but will have a lot of extra green in your wallet!2. Utilize Those Deals OnlineSure there’s old fashioned couponing, but it’s tedious and takes up a lot of time. In addition to couponing, try utilizing all of the bargains, coupons and deals on the internet. Make sure you sign up for your favorite brand’s newsletters for last-minute deals (whether that’s travel-related brands, clothing stores or restaurants you love). If you’re looking to save on groceries, goods and services, you need to check out the following sites and programs:VitacostHoneybookGrouponSavingstarLiving SocialYelp (they sometimes offer deals if you check-in online)3. Make Money For Your SkillsOdds are you’re making a large amount of money from your regular job. But what about making money doing something you love? There are plenty of ways to earn extra money by providing a service you already love to do in your spare time. If you make products (like artwork, knitwear, homemade candles or more) try selling your one-of-a-kind treasures online. If your skills are more abstract, like writing, photography or graphic design, try freelancing! You can work on these services outside of your normal working hours and make a lot of money if you have the experience!4. Sell Your ThingsWhen was the last time you used that 1st generation iPad? What about that old bracelet your ex gave you? Time to sell everything that’s holding you back (or cluttering your room). Just make sure you sell your things on the appropriate platform. Try Ebay for collectables or expensive items, Letgo or Poshmark for clothes and furniture and Craigslist for anything else as a last resort that won’t sell right away.5. Get Creative With Your WorkoutsGetting proper exercise might just be one of those things you need, but that super expensive pilates class isn’t. Cancel that gym membership and find an affordable way to work out. Run outdoors, train with a friend or try watching YouTube videos instead.6. Be the Designated DriverInstead of sitting at home on a Friday night watching reruns, why not make sure everyone gets home safe (and make a little extra money doing it)? Surely you’ve heard of Lyft or Uber. These ride share apps pay a good amount of money to take people from A to B. You can switch the app on and off whenever you want and can make a bunch of money during your free time you would have otherwise spent doing nothing.7. Take Advantage of Credit Card BenefitsIf you’re the type to pay off your credit card every month, opening up a new credit card could be very beneficial! Credit cards have plenty of benefits including travel related ones. Sure, opening up too many credit cards can hurt your credit, but one or two is very safe and worthwhile! Just make sure you sign up for the right ones (and make sure you pay them off monthly)! These “right ones” include cards with signing bonuses (like a large amount of points upon signing up) and great point-earning ratios. Every major credit card company has a travel-related card, my personal favorites are The Starwood Preferred Guest Credit Card from American Express and The Capital One VentureOne Card. Remember to always read the fine print here and use as you feel comfortable, don’t spend too much just to rack up travel points!8. Apps, Apps and More AppsThere’s an app for just about everything these days, naturally many of them can help you save money. Here are a few of my favorite that can either help track the money you already have or help you earn more:Mint (helps you budget and save)Stash (helps you save)Nielsen (helps you earn money)SavvyConnect (helps you earn money)Foap (helps you earn money)Receipt Hog (helps you earn money)9. Buy Things SecondhandI used to justify my shopping sprees with sales from my favorite stores, but even your favorite brands on sale can drain your wallet. Try shopping secondhand for clothes, furniture and gadgets. Thrifting is literally the only way I buy clothes now and I got most of my wedding decor from flea markets around the city. If you have the time and patience to sort through everything, you’ll find vintage and incredibly expensive gear that was marked down for being “last season.”last_img read more
