Ashton Kutcher has Twitter account hacked Ashton Kutcher's Twitter account (@aplusk) has been hacked this week, while the actor was at the TED 2011 'The Rediscovery of Wonder' conference.
Kutcher has 6.4 million followers and the hackers used account to write two simple messages.

The first says:

Ashton, you've been Punk'd. This account is not secure. Dude, where's my SSL?


The second, taking more of a political stance, reads:

P.S. This is for those young protesters around the world who deserve not to have their Facebook & Twitter accounts hacked like this. #SSL


Kutcher joins the growing ranks of celebrity Twitter accounts that have been hacked, including those of Barack Obama, Britney Spears and recently, Selena Gomez.

Gomez's account was hacked to say "Oh yeh, JUSTIN BIEBER SUCKS!!!!!!" Beiber is the actor's boyfriend.

I wouldn't let him know. Hell, I'd exploit it to get a little cash by ignorant people clicking on referral links.

this isnt hacking its phishing the supposed hacker has setup basically a trace(many way to do it and google can easily tell you) on the twitter account watching the data that transfers to and from it and the computer that logins into and and waiting for a password to appear any baboon can do it

now for those in disbelief of what i say SSL refers to encryption of data to and from the server and your computer without ssl or encryption the data is easily readable

real hackers use exploits to gain access without the assistance of a idiot basically giving you there password

the real definition has been twisted by idiots and it annoys me when so many people go around claiming to be a hacker because they can do something as stupid as this its as simple as giving a baboon a banana for pressing the correct buttons u could have a baboon doing this in a matter of no time

to whoever done this may u grow a brain and to all the celebrities using twitter your a bloody bored lot arnt ya's go out and get a real job and earn money like the rest of us then i can guarantee you wont give a shi* about twitter

When did females who act stop being actresses and become actors? Is "actress" now a demeaning term?
