SAN FRANCISCO — Twitter has recommended all of its users change their passwords.
The company announced on Thursday it discovered a bug that saved user passwords on an internal log without proper encryption.
Twitter said it has since fixed the issue. Although there is no evidence passwords have been leaked or misused, it is urging its users to update their passwords.
“As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password,” the company tweeted.
In its latest earnings report, Twitter said it has 330 million users worldwide.
We recently found a bug that stored passwords unmasked in an internal log. We fixed the bug and have no indication of a breach or misuse by anyone. As a precaution, consider changing your password on all services where you’ve used this password. https://t.co/RyEDvQOTaZ
