For those of you who use Twitter, be advised to stay off Twitter.com and stick to third-party apps like Tweetdeck or Twhirl.

Twitter’s website has been hacked. Visitors will contract a malicious “mouse-over” bug that causes pop-up windows to open merely by pointing your cursor over infected links. Do not be a silly looky-loo. Stay away from the site and avoid mousing over Javascript-embedded tweets from your friends.

More info here.

And here.

Update: As of 9:35am, Twitter safety folks say they’ve “identified and are patching” the attack.

Update: The security patch has reportedly been fully patched.
