PUNK'D: Ashton Kutcher's Twitter Account Hacked

Somebody has hacked into Ashton Kutcher’s official Twitter account and posted a couple of messages pointing out the fact.

In 2009, a Turkish graduate student figured out a hole in SSL and used it to steal Twitter usernames and passwords as they passed between users’ clients and the Twitter servers. Twitter closed that hole, but apparently a new one has been discovered.

Here are the messages so far:
