A Bug in Twitter’s Old Vine App May Have Exposed Your Email Published on May 19, 2017 at 10:40AM: An anonymous reader shares a report:

The video app, which Twitter bought in 2012 and shut down last year after its six-second videos failed to take off, sent out emails to some users Friday alerting them to a vulnerability in its service. Yeah, that’s right, Vine is dead, but your account may have been compromised anyway.

Apparently, the “bug” potentially exposed email addresses to hackers or other “third parties under certain circumstances.” The vulnerability apparently existed for less than 24 hours, or 14,400 Vine videos. “We take these incidents very seriously, and we’re sorry this occurred,” Vine wrote in its email.

It also said the information exposed could not be used to access accounts, and there were no indications any of the data had been misused.
