Monday Dec 21st 2009 by Staff

Twitter's DNS provider says that the Twitter blackout last Friday was caused by someone who logged in with the correct account credentials.

Computerworld: On Friday, hackers redirected traffic from to a different site for more than an hour. The company that manages Twitter's DNS records, Dyn Inc., denied that its infrastructure was compromised in the attack. Instead, Dyn Inc. said that whoever re-directed the traffic logged in to Twitter's account with the appropriate credentials.
