Hackers allegedly broke into the Twitter account of singer Justin Bieber, sending a less-than-flattering message to his 19 million fans.

"19 million my ass. #biebermyballs," read the message, with computer security firm Sophos saying the tweet was quickly deleted.   

While the attack was certainly more embarrasing than anything else, Sophos has pointed out that had the attackers offered a malware laden link baiting 19 million followers with free concert tickets for example, this could have been a very different story indeed.
