NCSC statement: cyber attack on Twitter

An NCSC statement on the reported attack on Twitter.

We are aware of a cyber attack on Twitter and have reached out to the company.

While this appears to be an attack on the company rather than individual users, we would urge people to treat requests for money or sensitive information on social media with extreme caution.

The NCSC has recently produced guidance for organisations on protecting what they publish on social media, and more widely we would remind people of our advice on staying secure through measures such as strong passwords and turning on two-factor authentication (2FA).
