If you use twitter, you need to read this...

Twitter Mouseover Security Flaw Affecting Thousands of Users [WARNING]

N SHORT: If you can, go into Twitter w/ a 3rd party app like TweetDeck or through a smartphone app and delete any recent messages you don't remember posting. That way people won't get infected by your message.

If you don't have access to a 3rd party app, I found I was able to go to my profile page http://twitter.com/ and carefully scroll down to the problem tweets and delete them.  I was careful to try to not "mouse over" the page an more than I had to, though.

Apparently, they've fixed the problem.
