Twitter accounts, passwords posted online

It appears that there has been an online security breach in Twitter as information bared online in Pastebin.com seemed to come from approximately 35,000 Twitter accounts, not including 20,000 redundancies, according to a message released by Twitter. 

The San Francisco firm on Tuesday said that it was trying to solve the mystery of how user names (including passwords) from tens of thousands of user accounts ended up being pasted at an online file sharing website. 

 “We’re looking into the situation and have pushed out password resets to potentially affected accounts,” Twitter said. 

According to Twitter, the online list of Pastebin Twitter accounts included spam accounts and incorrect log-in data.

Some of the email addresses I checked really come from real users, while some looked like spam bot accounts. Guys, I would highly suggest that you do visit the list now and see if your Twitter accounts are in danger. Access Twitter and change your passwords asap!

B-MEG Llamados wins PBA Commissioner's Cup title

The B-MEG Llamados, under Coach Tim Cone, takes down the previous holders of the PBA Commissioner's Cup title, the Talk 'N Text Tropang Texters, with the score 90-84, today (Sunday) at the Smart Araneta Coliseum. Best Import of the Conference Denzel Bowles opened the doors for an opportunity to dominate the game by forcing an overtime.

With 13.3 seconds left and TNT point guard Jimmy Alapag holding things together, the Llamados sent Ali Peek to the field yielding 76-74.

With just two seconds left, MVP James Yap did a good pass to Bowles who failed to do a point-blank shot, yet managed to receive a crucial foul from Kelly Williams, granting him the chance to redeem himself at the line. Bowles sent the game into an extra five minutes, where he brought the Llamados' rocking 10 points, changing an 80-81 status to an 86-81 lead..

A superbly eager Tropang Texters brood tried to catch up during the timeou,  but team mate Alapag passed the ball to no one, depriving the team of a possible speedy run.

B-MEG's Jonas Villanueva and Bowles ended the game; meanwhile, loud cheers come out from the Llamados side of the court. Bowles gloriously rounded up with 39 points, 21 rebounds and three blocks.
