Twitter Phishing Attack Spreading via Direct Message

A Twitter phishing attack is spreading rapidly today, attempting to obtain Twitter logins via Direct Messages. If you receive a message reading “lol, is this you”, and linking to a site called “bzpharma,” do not click the link.

Users who do click that link and enter their details are inadvertently letting spammers take over their accounts, which are then used to spam the same Direct Message to all their friends.

If you’re receiving these messages, your account is not compromised, but if you find you’re sending them, make sure to change your Twitter password immediately.

We’ve already notified Twitter  of the issue.

Thanks to Laura Fitton (@pistachio), CEO/Founder of “Twitter appstore” Oneforty.com for giving us a heads-up on this.
