Twitter Takes Legal Action Following Source Code Leak

Twitter Takes Legal Action , Following Source Code Leak.

'The Guardian' reports that a March 24 court filing revealed that Twitter is taking legal action against code-sharing service GitHub.

While GitHub has removed Twitter's leaked code, the social media platform is requesting a court order... ... to force GitHub to “identify the alleged infringer or infringers who posted Twitter’s source code on systems operated by GitHub without Twitter’s authorization.”.

'The Guardian' reports that the code was posted to GitHub, a Microsoft-owned business, by the user FreeSpeechEnthusiast.

He reportedly referred to himself as a "free speech abolitionist," a term Musk has used to identify himself in the past.

According to Steven Murdoch, a professor of security engineering at University College London, .

Source code leaks can lead to significant security vulnerabilities.

Leaks of source code like this can allow security vulnerabilities to be identified and may disclose sensitive commercial information, Steven Murdoch, a professor of security engineering at University College London, via 'The Guardian'.

However, Twitter’s most valuable resources are its brand, customer base, and the skills of its employees.

I would be surprised if this leak has any significant long-term effect on the company, Steven Murdoch, a professor of security engineering at University College London, via 'The Guardian'.

Meanwhile, 'The New York Times' reports that Twitter CEO Elon Musk recently revealed in a memo to employees that the company is currently worth less than half of the $44 billion he paid for it in October

'Volt Typhoon': Microsoft says this China-sponsored group behind cyber attacks in USA |Oneindia News

Microsoft has claimed that a Chinese cyberespionage group has been targeting critical infrastructure organizations across the United States…including Guam, an island hosting multiple military bases, since at least mid-2021. Experts say it's one of the largest known cyber espionage campaigns against the US. The attack was reportedly carried out by China's state-sponsored cyber group "Volt Typhoon” and the attacks relied on "living-off-the-land techniques". This involved hackers infiltrating local networks to modify their tools and issue commands, while remaining largely undetected. Their targets and breached entities span a wide range of critical sectors, including government, maritime, communications, manufacturing, information technology, utilities, transportation, construction, and education. Together with the Five Eyes alliance - comprising the intelligence agencies of the US, Australia, Britain, New Zealand and Canada - Microsoft had published details of the cyber-espionage attacks this past Wednesday. #Volttyphoonespionage #Microsofthacking #Chinahacking ~PR.153~ED.102~GR.125~HT.178~
