Facebook and Twitter Hacking

I guess it's not surprising that people's Facebook and twitter accounts are getting compromised. From the New York Times:
"Malicious programs are rampaging through Web sites like Facebook and Twitter, spreading themselves by taking over people’s accounts and sending out messages to all of their friends and followers. The result is that people are inadvertently telling their co-workers and loved ones how to raise their I.Q.’s or make money instantly, or urging them to watch an awesome new video in which they star." (from From Viral Crooks, Social Networks are Prime Targets)
I just changed my three Twitter accounts, and Facebook accounts to use a "very hard" password. I suggest you consider doing it too :)
