Twitter’s login credentials were used to make DNS changes that redirected
surfers to a protest site last Friday,
according to site admins.
Surfers visiting the micro-blogging website for about an hour early on Friday
morning were instead redirected to a page on another site, boasting that Twitter
had been pwned by a previously unknown group called the Iranian Cyber Army.
Twitter acknowledged its DNS records "were temporarily compromised" in a
status page update, without going into the ins and out of the hack.
