It appears that Buffer's Facebook and Twitter spam messages were first sent at around 2:20 p.m. ET. Hackers have used the exploit to spam user accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and other sites.
Just recently, Instagram saw a viral wave of weight-loss-related spam spread quickly across its service, though it was not the result of a hack.
There’s not much detail from Buffer on the hack, though as of the time of publishing, it doesn’t seem as if the Buffer team itself knows just yet.
Buffer also today reported that the problem has been fixed and that security has been bolstered. The service is now operating as normal, but users will need to reconnect their Facebook and Twitter accounts.
