Security Advice

Twitter Security Meltdown

It has been recently reported that twitter has been plagued by wide spread phishing attacks.
The security failure has resulted in the temporary takeover of Twitter accounts associated with Facebook, Fox News, The Huffington Post, Barack Obama, Britney Spears, and CNN's Rick Sanchez.
This is an advice to all my readers to temporarily not check the twitter account of speak india, i.e. http://twitter.com/speakindia, since you could be vulnerable to a phishing attack. As of now, the twitter account is working fine but it is advisable to stay away from it until twitter takes measures to correct the security fault.

I will inform you when it is safe to check twitter again. Hoping for a safe web browsing experience.
