Phishers Target TwitterCategory: Internet

While phishing websites are always on the security list for users, the common social network site known as Twitter has recently taken a hit. The link, which tells users that they have a funny blog about themselves on Blogspot, redirects them to a phony Twitter login page that steals the user's password once the unknowing person has entered it. Once it has their password, the hoax website may use the account to send the initial link to more people that are following an account, or an account that is following other users. Both the Twitter Eng and Ops teams are aware of the problem, but to be safe, members of the site are being advised to not click on any links.
