As per a tweet from Twitter’s Biz Stone last night followed by a blog post it appears that Twitter’s DNS servers have been compromised yesterday. The cracker redirected the DNS so it displayed a message from “The Iranian Cyber Army”. As far as we can tell with the NameServer History tool at DomainTools, it appears that the change would have been made directly in the DNS entries. This is confirmed by the statement from Biz Stone that the API had not been affected by the attack, so most likely that DNS entry was not change.
