Vulnerability Reporting in the Age of Social Media Posted by Mikko @ 13:28 GMT

Last night, I was searching for an old e-mail when I spotted this funny header:

Tweetdeck XSS

Somebody had a sense of humor, inserting an XSS joke in e-mail headers.

I thought it was funny, so I posted about it to Twitter:

Tweetdeck XSS

Few minutes later, I saw Robin Jackson reply with this:

To prove it was real, Robin posted a screenshot.

The client he was using was Tweetdeck for Chrome. Time to inform the developers. And of course, they are on Twitter as well.

Randy Janinda from Twitter's security team responded within minutes:

And just two hours later I got the confirmation from Tom Woolway of the Twitter development team that the fix is out:

Signing off,
