Twitter phishing scamJanuary 3, 2009 – 5:54 PM
There’s a scam spreading through Twitter. Direct messages (DMs) are showing up in Twitter accounts with appealing come-ons to visit a site on blogspot.com. The text is, “hey! check out this funny blog about you…” The URL in the message then redirects to a page that looks like the Twitter login page, but is actually not on Twitter — it’s a site, twitter.access-logins.com, that masquerades as Twitter to steal your login credentials instead.
If you need to log in to Twitter, do it on Twitter.com itself. And to play it safe, double-check your browser address bar to make sure that’s where you are.
The phishing site in question also appears to support the theft of Facebook IDs.
