Twitter has been warning users not to fall for the latest phishing scam that takes the form of a DM from someone you know warning you to check out a “real bad blog about you”.
The link takes the potential victims to a very well executed clone of Twitter’s login page, but a glance at the address bar reveals that it’s the work of a typosquatter.
This bait is definitely one of the better ones I’ve seen on Twitter in a while, as it targets both those users who are worried about their online reputation and the insatiably curious ones .
The microblogging service is currently in the process of resetting the passwords for those who fell for the trick.
A good rule of thumb is that if you were logged into Twitter.com and suddenly find yourself logged out after clicking on an offered link, you have probably reached a fake phishing page trying to steal your password.
