Celebrity Twitpic accounts hacked

The Associated Press is reporting that hackers were able to break into some Twitpic accounts due to a “vulnerability” in the system. The service allows Twitter users to share photographs, but is not owned by Twitter.

The extent of the hack or its purpose was not reported, but the hackers reportedly sent out fake information about celebrities whose accounts they managed to access. Britney Spears and Ellen DeGeneres were among those affected.
