XSS vulnerability in TweetDeck

The TweetDeck, is a Twitter tool to manage receiving and sending 140 character messages. The service was found to have an XSS (cross-site scripting) vulnerability and allows attacks that trigger the emergence of warning dialogues on clients.

Cross-site scripting vulnerability is a type of malicious content injection that can be performed on an online application by using data from an attacker without validating the code.

In some cases, of course, the problem is very serious, as the messages (some of them are very obscene) are retweeted over and over again. A message coming from the "@derGeruhn" account was automatically retweeted over 35.000 times.

Vulnerability appears to have affected only the TweetDeck service as the web interface and other applications using the Twitter API function normally.

When malicious messages did not stop due to vulnerability, TweetDeck temporarily offline offline for a while. TweetDeck's services are now working without any problems.
