Nacin quoted in TechCrunch post

1 Comment

Andrew Nacin, a core developer of WordPress, was quoted in a TechCrunch post covering a recent Twitter exploit. In it, Nacin comments that the recent bug was a “cross-site request forgery” which uses an iframe of twitter.com and Javascript code to post unintended tweets to a user’s account.

Nacin has written a more in-depth review of the exploit in this post and links to a post by Mark Jaquith that details how WordPress is able to ignore such forgeries.

  1. Leave it to Andrew to try and clear up the confusion. Sounds like a guilty conscious to me. #blamenacin
