Twitter under attack again

Today saw a new scam affecting users of the popular Twitter micro-blogging site, while security experts reported that hackers are taking advantage of heightened public interest in Twitter-related security issues to spread malware.

The latest Twitter problems appear to be a new raft of messages being posted to the Twitter feeds of users containing the words and link, “You’ll like this one! Check out www.TheSmartEcard.com”, or “Retweet: You’ll love this one! Check out www.TheSmartEcard.com”.

According to Twitter, the problem is a “scam/phishing site” rather than something more malicious. Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at security vendor Sophos, warned users to avoid clicking on the link.
