Submission + - Twitter OAuth API Keys Leaked (threatpost.com)

Trailrunner7 writes: The OAuth keys and secrets that official Twitter applications use to access users’ Twitter accounts have been leaked in a post to Github this morning.

The consumer keys and secrets, which function similarly to a username and password, were posted for Twitter for iPhone, Android, iPad, Mac, Windows Phone and TweetDeck. Unapproved third-party applications can now use these secrets to impersonate legitimate third-party apps and circumvent any access control measures Twitter has in place for unofficial apps.

This discussion was created for logged-in users only, but now has been archived. No new comments can be posted.
