Twitter emailed developers today letting them know about a bug that could have affected their information privacy.
The email, obtained by TechCrunch, states that developer app keys and tokens may have been temporarily stored in the browser cache of a public or shared computer.
“If someone who used the same computer after you in that temporary timeframe knew how to access a browser’s cache, and knew what to look for, it is possible they could have accessed the keys and tokens that you viewed,” the email reads. This situation would arise only if the developer was using a shared computer with a logged-in Twitter account, though.
Twitter discovered and fixed the issue by changing the cache instructions sent to browsers, so that they don’t store information about your apps or account.
“While we currently have no evidence that your developer app keys and tokens were compromised, we want to make sure you’re aware of what happened and what you can do to keep your apps and account secure,” Twitter said.
