BY Naoki Hiroshima: "A story of how PayPal and GoDaddy allowed the attack and caused me to lose my $50,000 Twitter username."

That proves anything is possible because of human stupidity.
The bigger company the more it is vulnerable.

Btw, i went to a bank a couple days ago.
And i've seen operators have their passwords printed and glued to their monitors LOL ;)

UPDATE: Sorry if i've mislead someone. Thats not my story.
I've mention Naoki Hiroshima(the author) in title and desctiption since the beginning. Set it more clear now.
Latest Thanks - View all

Thats really sucks man. Pay$hit and GoDaddy are execrable, all should stay away from them!
You lost your username, even it's 50k$ worth there is no big loose. Everything is possible on the internet ;)

It just shows how easy it is for attackers to gain access to your email and accounts. Very poor from GoDaddy and Paypal in this case though.
