Last year, I put out a call to the infosec community on Twitter for some new ideas on electronic music and Sci Fi books in the “cyberpunk” genre. Tons of you responded, and I wanted to capture this in a blog post to share the feedback...

Want to see how infosec integrates into a DevOps work stream? Watch this fantastic talk by Justin Collins, Neil Matatall, and Alex Smolen from Twitter, called “Put Your Robots To Work: Security Automation at Twitter..."

There is a form of phishing becoming more common on Twitter that is likely to fool even the most suspicious of users. I very nearly fell for it myself. What stopped me? Unlike me, the person who purportedly sent me the message doesn’t make the sort of spelling mistakes that were in the message...

At the end of July, Twitter suspended the account of Guy Adams, a reporter for the UK’s Independent, after he posted the corporate email address of Jim Bell, Producer of NBC Olympics, and said less than flattering things about his expectations for how NBC would do in their Olympics coverage.

What I came out with, after many slides of numbers, was “nope not really”, which I pretty much had thought before. There are just too many variables to this type of venture and you would need to have a trained psychoanalyst to talk to the individual to determine whether or not they are a true psychopath...

On this first day of Defcon, it appears my @th3j35t3r twitter account has been suspended. Coincidence? Probably not. We all know I have some pretty desperate enemies who will stop at nothing to see me inconvenienced, discredited or otherwise annoyed. So here’s the upshot...

It seems to me that more and more we are being collectively mined not only for our habits, but now our emotions as well as our psychological makeups. All of this could potentially be collated from numerous sources. I doubt we will ever be able to contextualize the human psyche just from internet datum…

I've gotten in a lot of arguments lately about the end-user side of technology - privacy. Many in the security industry already know most of the things people are discovering, and have screamed warnings from the mountaintops to the folks below. Alas, this is the woe of being a security engineer...

About the twitter ‘takeover’. I have to say that was clever. Even though my account wasn’t actually breached per se. The folks behind this latest attempt found an auto-RSS/Email to tweet script that uses the Twitter API and worked out a way to post to my account without actually having any physical access. Kudos...

We have mentioned before that Twitter will send every tweet to the National Archives and the Library of Congress, so watch what you tweet. Now new tools unleash a trove of data in moments. For the 140 million and growing user base that tweets over 400 million tweets per day, this might be a little more than alarming...

The third-party authentication process implements the open standard for authorization, or OAuth, that allows users to share private resources stored on one site with another. The hack raises a serious question regarding the security level ensured by third-party authentication processes...

Congress seeks clarification on how Twitter purports to honor a user’s choice to opt-out of targeted advertising and data collection using the Do Not Track browser option, while simultaneously collecting user information from third party websites under the tailored suggestions program...

This doesn’t mean Twitter will stop collecting all data on you. They’ll still be able to collect aggregate data about your browsing habits for analytics and security, but they won’t set a cookie and they won’t use data to suggest users to you or for tailoring your Twitter experience...

As I watched, the conspiracies mounted – one of my favorites is that Smedley is in fact me and I am cashing out or something, so I decided to up the ante. I (probably stupidly in hindsight) unpublished my blog posts and deactivated my twitter to lend credibility to Smedley's claims...

The content on a website maintained by anit-jihadi hacker The Jester (th3j35t3r) has been deleted and the hacktivist's Twitter account has been mysteriously taken down, and the events have sent the Twittersphere into a frenzy of conjecture... Has The Jester been doxed?

Twitter is downplaying a security breach that exposed tens of thousands of user emails and passwords. The compromised Twitter accounts could have been the result of phishing attacks. Whenever you read about such breaches, it is always a good idea to change your password...
