“You’re on here”? New Twitter Phishing Attack

A week does not go by when we do not hear of a new phishing attack on micro-blogging site Twitter. This latest attack uses Direct Messages to spread – offering the user a link “You’re on here”, which has a shorter Twitter URL link that leads you to a phishing site.

Mashable reports that this malicious site is called mhansenhome, once there you will be greeted with a message that someone has posted you on their blog – which then asks for your Twitter login details.

This is a serious problem as many users will click on the URL as it has a shortened Twitter one, the website even boasts that thousands of Twitter accounts have been hacked through this process.

It was only last month when the social media site was targeted by the LOL phishing attack. This was yet another attack aimed at stealing Twitter login details. For those with a Twitter account, please make certain that you do not click on any links received through DM just delete it.
