Hackers Compromise AP Twitter

Hackers have compromised the main Twitter account of The Associated Press, sending out an erroneous tweet about an attack at the White House. The tweet, which said that there had been two explosions at the White House and President Barack Obama was injured, came after hackers made repeated attempts to steal the passwords of AP journalists. The AP said today that its Twitter account had been suspended following a hack and said it was working to correct the issue/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Have you ever been hacked?
