The Twitter account of Ashton Kutcher appears to have been compromised over the past 24 hours, based on two tweets posted on behalf of him.

First tweet:

  • Ashton, you've been Punk'd. This account is not secure. Dude, where's my SSL?

Second tweet:

  • P.S. This is for those young protesters around the world who deserve not to have their Facebook & Twitter accounts hacked like this. #SSL

Although the SSL sniffing which theoretically can take place is clearly not malicious in this case, the potential for abuse -- malware, scams, phishing links -- given Kutcher's 6 million followers, remains a fully realistic scenario if it was.
