Twitter Phishing Attempt

The latest Twitter phishing scam involves a DM reading “lol, is this you”,  "you look funny", "haha this is funny" and linking to a site called “bzpharma”, do not click the link.

If you do click the link and then enter your details (but why would you!?) then your Twitter account will be used to send out more rogue DM's.

If this has happened to you, we suggest you log in to your Twitter account and change your password immediately.

In fact we recommend you change you password frequently anyway (a pain, but a safer option)

It seems as though these DM's have been around for a while now, but have suddenly re-surfaced in large numbers recently.


AS ALWAYS: Be very wary and suspicious of any links sent to you, especially if the grammar is slightly odd.

Be even more careful with links that have been shortened, and therefore obscured.

We recommend using Sucuri which shows the real location of a shortened url.
