Email Spam Run Impersonates Twitter Support Staff.

Security researchers warn of an on-going email spam campaign, which masquerades as messages from Twitter's support team. The fake emails also abuse the logo and layout of the popular micro-blogging platform.

The rogue messages have spoofed headers in order to appear to be originating from support@twitter.com. According to Panda Security, the spam is well constructed and is able to bypass Gmail's anti-spam filters.

In order to entice users into visiting the included link, the spam makes use of the Twitter logo and claims that recipients have unread messages in their Twitter accounts. For added credibility, it also contains a disclaimer message that normally accompanies generic emails from Twitter. "Please do not reply to this message; it was sent from an unmonitored email address. This message is a service email related to your use of Twitter," it reads.
