New Direct Message Scam
A massive phising scam has been exploding all over twitter within the last 48 hours. The direct message has been sending twitter users the following message, “You look like you lost weight in the video.”
There is a link after the message that will redirect you to a fake twitter login page. If you try to login it will fail and you will have been phised. The hackers can then access your twitter account and send more spam or viruses to other unsuspecting users.
If you have clicked the link and entered your login details, immediately change your password. Make sure to use a strong password composed of both numbers and letters. Also, make sure you check the applications tab in account settings to remove any suspicious applications that you did not give permission to access.
Twitter has officially requested that any direct message that seems suspicious to be reported as spam to let their spam team handle the situation.
