Warning: Twitter Worm is Spreading Through Twitter’s Direct Messages

Twitter users beware! A new worm

is being spread through Twitter’s usersphere through DMs or direct messages where a supposed ‘friend’ will send you the following message and if you click on the link in the message, you will be spreading the worm!What happens if you click on the link is that it takes you to a phishing site which looks exactly like the Twitter login page and once you enter your login details, they will steal them and use your account to continue the worm by sending out more DMs.

This is a bad worm due to the fact that the login page looks VERY convincing and the link supposedly came from your friend.

So, if you recieve the above message do not click on the link! Delete it and possibly inform your Twtter friend that he should change his password.
