Hacking social network sites is nothing new, yet political junkies have been Tweeting over an odd story about New York Congressman Anthony Weiner. It goes something like this: Over the weekend, Weiner’s Twitter account posted a photo addressed to a young woman in Seattle. The picture was quickly deleted, but not before it was seen and re-posted. The explanation from the Congressman: his account had been hacked; he’d never met the gal in Seattle; and he would never send out such a photo.
Michael Gregg was interviewed by National Public Radio (NPR) on the technical aspects of this story and how such a twitter hack could potentially occur. Listen to the complete NPR interview with Michael Gregg here: http://media.scpr.org/audio/airtalk/20110602_airtalk.mp3
