Today, a phishing attack is spreading in Twitter via direct message. As far as we know, it’s an attempt to obtain Twitter logins. A site named “bzpharma” is linked in the message. The message is like: “lol, is this you” then the link of the phishing site. Don’t click the link. Mashable.com reported it a few hours ago.
According to Mashable:
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 (Twitter) password immediately.
We’ve already notified Twitter of the issue.
