Windows 7: Phishing Returns to Twitter Via Direct Message.

02 Mar 2010   #1

Win 7 Ultimate 64-bit. SP1.
Phishing Returns to Twitter Via Direct Message.

Another wave of Twitter phishing has erupted this afternoon, with a spat of direct messages that read “somebody wrote something about you in this blog here” with a link to an ominous short URL.

That short URL asks users to log in to Twitter but one look at your browser’s address bar indicates that it is not Twitter you’re logging into, but a third-party site that looks like Twitter. Once you provide said site with your login details, it DMs your followers, hence creating the viral loop that is the anatomy of a Twitter phishing scam.
