Twitter names famed hacker Peiter Zatko known as ‘Mudge’ the head of security

Twitter has named famous hacker Peiter Zatko known as ‘Mudge’ as head of security on Monday.

As being reported, Zatko answers CEO Jack Dorsey and is expected to take over the management of key security functions after a 45 to 60-day review.

The Social media giant faces numerous security challenges. It has been under increased threat of regulation and troubled by serious security breaches, that is the reason that it is appointing one of the world’s best-regarded hackers to handle everything from engineering missteps to misinformation.

Zatko in an exclusive interview said that he will examine “information security, site integrity, physical security, platform integrity — which starts to touch on abuse and manipulation of the platform — and engineering.”
