Overnight it looked like Twitter sent out a phishing/dangerous link to almost all of my friends saying “you’re in this blog..” with a link to click that redirects you to a malicious/suspicious page. If you receive this do not click on it!
Twitter phishing attack spreads via Direct Messages
The cause of this seems to be there’s a scam going on on Twitter currently…

The good news is that my account was not hacked and no damage was done to any of my SL sites. This happened over night when I was sleeping so I was not a happy bunny when I received word about it this morning.
Thanks very much about informing me about this. Much appreciated!

The bad news is, that having received this when it was late, and I was groggy, I did click on it. Then, it sent me to a page that looked EXACTLY like the twitter login page (but at twitler.com/twitterlogin – I noticed too late). And having this note from a known blogger, and it being so late, I fell for it and logged in (I wasn’t logged in, so it made sense that I would have to login).
A week on Twitter, and I fell for a phishing scam, something I NEVER have done. There it is. I luckily noticed something didn’t seem right pretty fast, and when and changed all my passwords in various places. I hope. But if anyone out there gets crap from me, please alert me to this fact.
Im so glad I ready Dan’s twit before i cheched my msg there:)
uh oh 😦 I know it went to a log in page, but not sure now if I logged in, I know it kept taking me to it, I thought you had made a mistake with the link 😦
Seems to be sorted now and has reset passwords etc.
Grr Twitter phishing <_<
