Twitter Phishing Scam: “Stalkers App”

spam1 150x150 Twitter Phishing Scam: Stalkers App

Many Twitter users are being hit with a message claiming to link to a new Twitter app that will “track your stalkers.”  If you click on the link you are taken to what appears to be a legitimate Twitter page, asking you to confirm your username and password before the “Stalkers” app can access your account.

If you make the mistake of entering this information, the phishers will be able to access your private messages and send messages (most likely spam related or malicious links) to your followers, reports Naked Security.

If your Twitter account is sending out these phishing messages or if you made the mistake of entering your information, BBB recommends changing your password as soon as possible.
