Initially TweetDeck announced that the issue could be fixed by signing off and back onto TweetDeck, but less than 30 minutes later they took the service off line:
We’ve temporarily taken TweetDeck services down to assess today’s earlier security issue. We’ll update when services are back up.

Postscript: After about an hour offline, TweetDeck service was restored.
