(DCWatchdog.com) – BREAKING NOW: In bombshell testimony before a United States Senate committee today, the former security chief for Twitter testified under oath that the leadership of Twitter has been lying to everyone when it comes to the cybersecurity it provides its users.
You can watch the video clip of Peiter “Mudge” Zatko, a renowned hacker who became Twitter’s security chief and is now a whistleblower, further down this post.
According to Zatko:
“I’m here today because Twitter’s leadership is misleading the public, lawmakers, regulators, and even its own board of directors. What I discovered when I joined Twitter was that this enormously influential company was over a decade behind industry security standards.
“The company’s cybersecurity failures make it vulnerable to exploitation, causing real harm to real people.
“And when an influential media platform can be compromised by teenagers, thieves, and spies, and the company repeatedly creates security problems on their own, this is a big deal for all of us.” [emphasis added]
