MSN reports on Twitter "onmouseover" hack, since fixed

Today, MSN reported (with a YouTube video by Sophos/Webroot) of an attack on Twitter, whereby a user, if passing a mouse over a url, would find it hacked and sent to a spammer’s porn site. It’s been fixed now. The MSN story (“Twitter counters onmouserover security flaw”) is by By Athima Chansanchai with link here.

The writer says she escaped the problem by going right to Tweetdeck before going onto normal Twitter.
