Twitter officially confirmed that a January breach led to the leak of information connected to 5.4 million accounts.

Two weeks ago, a hacker on Breach Forums offered email addresses and phone numbers connected to the accounts, which they said ranged from “celebrities, companies, randoms, OGs, etc.”

Researchers immediately tied the post to a vulnerability in Twitter’s platform that was discovered in January by a security researcher who reported the issue through HackerOne, which operates a bug bounty platform used by Twitter.

Twitter told The Record on July 22 that it would investigate the issue. On Friday, the company confirmed both that the information was obtained through the vulnerability and that the stolen information was legitimate.
