Twitter Hit With 'Is This You?' Photo Malware

Quote:
Twitter spam is nothing new, but a recent malware campaign has been targeting users of the micro-blogging service via links that claim to include their photos.

The links originate from Russian websites that attempt to infect Windows PCs with the Blackhole exploit kit, Naked Security reported.

The malicious messages don't necessarily follow the same tweet pattern.

In a series of tweets featured on Naked Security, the cybercriminals target a specific user, saying, "It's you on photo?" with a hyperlink that includes the username. Another version Naked Security pointed out said, "It's about you?" with the same .html link.

Twitter users who receive these or similar messages are encouraged to not click on them. The accounts from which the messages are being sent have either been compromised by hackers, or were created by hackers with the intent of spreading mass links, Naked Security said.
