Ashton Kutcher's Twitter account hacked

Summary: 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.


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.

    Ashton Kutchers pretty sound in my opinion, but darn hackers are so annoying, why don't they do something worthwhile.
