Twitter Phishing Site

The newest phishing scam showed up today – maybe it’s been around a while?

First you get the Direct Message – this one forwarded to my email:

20091128_twitter_phish_email

The link in the DM/email takes you to a  site that is a perfect replica of the (old) Twitter logon screen.

But wait.

ALWAYS check the URL before you type in your username/password.

20091128_twitter_phish_webscreen

They even bothered to include the Twitter favicon, but the url is…

20091128_url_favicon

And here’s who owns THAT URL, via a public Whois search…

  1. Nice detective work, Robert. Will you send an alert to gmail and 4everdns.com, too?

    Creative little bastards, these phishers! If only their talents were turned to good instead of evil (as Batman would say to his caped companion…).
