Symantec has reported that Twitter is being used as bait to phish personal information:
“Spammers habitually exploit the reputations of brands for their benefit. As more and more people become connected through social networking sites, it is no surprise that the trust and reputation earned by these websites is misused by spammers. We are monitoring spam attacks this week that try to take advantage of the burgeoning social networking brand Twitter for two spam campaigns: make money fast (MMF) and dating spam.”
Yes, we have seen Twitter-ers microblogging links to Make Money Fast sites. No, we have not been lured to give out personal information.
Hopefully, others have remained far from the reach of MMF sites too.
