PayPal UK Twitter Account Hacked [reuters.com]
Hackers seized control of a PayPal Twitter feed on Tuesday, then sent out messages criticizing the payment processor in the second attack of its type in two days.

A PayPal spokesman said via email that the attack on the Twitter account had not affected the company's operations or its internal computer networks. Officials with Twitter did not respond to emails seeking comment.

"PayPal UK is unaffected by this and has not been breached or affected," the PayPal spokesman said.
