Correction: Twitter API Does Have SSL Support!

Previously, I wrote about the supposed lack of SSL/HTTPS support in the Twitter API. However, thanks to Tony for pointing me in the right direction. I DID find support for HTTPS in the API and I have since updated my own tool (released by me as freeware and not associated with MSI) to use it.

For those of you who are interested, you can find the new release of TweetCLI 1.10 that supports updates via HTTPS here:

Windows, Linux, OS X versions.

Thanks to everyone that uses it and feel free to let me know your thoughts and feelings on twitter @lbhuston.

The new version should work as a simple replacement in the previously released HPSS plugin.

You can also subscribe to a “bad touches” feed from some of our Internet exposed HoneyPoints around the world. We are publishing source IP and destination ports only currently, as we work on ways to publish the payloads we get in some manner as well. More on that in the future. The current “bad touches” feed is @honeypoint.

Apologies to twitter for the SSL issue. Additions to the API documentation to show HTTPS examples as the default would be much appreciated.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. Thanks for reading and we look forward to more infosec news and research in the future.
