Last Friday, Twitter confirmed a now-patched zero-day bug was used to link phone numbers and emails to user accounts on the social media platform. Twitter said the bug, which it was made aware of in January 2022, stemmed from a code change introduced in June 2021. No passwords were exposed as a result of the incident. Twitter’s press release did not state the exact number of impacted users, but posts on dark web forums suggest over 5.48 million user profiles were impacted. The data was reportedly being sold for $30,000.
