Buffer suffers a hack, spammy messages going out on users Facebook accounts
Buffer, a handy app for cross-posting to multiple social networks, has experienced an unfortunate hack that is spamming some Facebook accounts. The Buffer team is aware of the issue, and is currently sending out emails explaining what's happening:
I wanted to get in touch to apologize for the awful experience we've caused many of you on your weekend. Buffer was hacked around 1 hour ago, and many of you may have experienced spam posts sent from you via Buffer. I can only understand how angry and disappointed you must be right now.
Not everyone who has signed up for Buffer has been affected, but you may want to check on your accounts. We're working hard to fix this problem right now and we're expecting to have everything back to normal shortly.
Buffer is currently hiding any Facebook posts being made via the app, though that's not to say there haven't been some horribly spammy posts already made. So you should probably check out your Facebook account. No Buffer passwords or any billing or account information have been compromised, and users are encouraged to keep an eye on Buffer's Twitter and Facebook account for further information.
Anyone out there been affected?
