Twitter users should be especially careful this morning as there’s a new Twitter phish campaign going on. The message that is being seen is using a known tactic where it tries to trick the user into believing there’s some content on the internet about them, whether it be a photo or a video, and tricks them to browse to the link to find out what it is. Similar tactics have been seen in messages on Facebook and even via email. The message simply states the following.
“hi. this you on here? http://blogger.djh****.com”
The good news is if you do a search on Twitter, you’ll have a hard time finding an example of the original message since there’s an overwhelming number of people tweeting to their friends warning them about this campaign. Slowly but surely, people are learning to be more cautious.
