Twitter Spam

Filed Under: Social networks, SophosLabs, Spam

Trying desperately hard to be hip and cool, I joined twitter recently to check out all the hype. I am kind of disappointed. So far, I have one friend to follow and one friend that follows me.

This morning, my heart nearly stopped when I checked my mail box. <Blah> is now following you on Twitter!, says the subject. I felt the sudden surge in my popularity. I went on to check out who is my new friend.

Turns out that its a porn spam. Spammers have indirectly gotten into my mailbox thru twitter. BTW, I picked up a new acronym through this. NSFW = Not Safe For Work. :D
