The URL-shortening service Bitly has suffered a data breach, and the collateral damage has spread to include Facebook and Twitter accounts. In a blog posting Mark Josephson, CEO of New York-based Bitly said "We have reason to believe that Bitly account credentials have been compromised." Because Bitly is among thousands of websites that let users log in with Facebook or Twitter credentials, anyone who did so is urged to change their Facebook or Twitter passwords.
