Could someone please explain to a layman (that'd be me) how on Earth this can happen?!
Crappy security ?
There are worse things to hack than a twitter account. I'd suggest you watch John Oliver's segment about lax security around nuclear weapons. Frightening.
Being Twitter, am I right in thinking that crappy security is a rubbish password?
Totally agree, which is why I'm intrigued that they managed to hack the Twitter account of such a high profile, high security department.
Also, how come a bunch of terrorists manage to do this at all?!
It's Twitter. I hardly think Central Command is using it for national security communication. And they don't control security of Twitter.
Man now you made me go and change my Twitter password !!
Well, of course not! But it's embarrassing nonetheless. So, is the answer to my original question simply that the administrators of the account had a rubbish password that allowed the hackers to just guess away?
etc etc etc until they got it right?
When I first got a computer in Africa, my PLO and Syrian computer techs told me small case, large case, signs, ie. #$% and mix them up, it seems to work.
