News Tech: WASHINGTON, Aug 24 (Reuters) – Twitter Inc.’s (TWTR.N) former security chief Peiter “Mudge” Zatko, who has accused the social media company of misleading regulators, met staff in the office of U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal this week to discuss his whistleblower complaint, said two sources familiar with the situation.

Blumenthal, a Democrat on the Senate Commerce Committee with a keen interest in Big Tech, wrote in a letter to Federal Trade Commission chair Lina Khan: “According to disclosures and evidence provided by Peiter ‘Mudge’ Zatko, a highly-respected cybersecurity expert who served as Twitter’s Security Lead from 2020 to 2022, Twitter executives allegedly failed to address significant security vulnerabilities, neglected the mishandling of personal data, and ignored known privacy risks to users for more than a decade.”

Zatko, who accused Twitter of falsely claiming it had a solid security plan and making misleading statements about its defenses against hackers and spam accounts, discussed his complaint with Blumenthal’s staff.

Blumenthal called for an FTC investigation in the letter.
