Tweetdeck has temporarily taken down its services following a "security issue" that caused many Twitter accounts to automatically retweet malicious code across the Twitterverse today.
Tweetdeck, a popular service that allows people to manage multiple Twitter feeds at once, tweeted the announcement around 1 p.m. ET, saying it would update users when services are back up.
We've temporarily taken TweetDeck services down to assess today's earlier security issue. We'll update when services are back up.— TweetDeck (@TweetDeck) June 11, 2014
About 20 minutes earlier, it had notified users that users were safe if they logged out and logged back in.
A security issue that affected TweetDeck this morning has been fixed. Please log out of TweetDeck and log back in to fully apply the fix.— TweetDeck (@TweetDeck) June 11, 2014
It's been a bad day for cyberattacks on cloud services. Note-storing service Evernote and RSS feed reader Feedly were also disrupted today.
