I was sitting on my couch last night and got a phishing tweet texted to me on my cell phone.  Luckily it wasn't the middle of the night!

The text of the attack was "This you????" with a link to a bogus website asking me to sign in.  Wonder how many people turned over their password, and I also wonder how much twitter passwords go for on the black market?

I remember a post by Twitter Tips last weekend warning people about the attack.

AA's account was hacked this morning because they clicked on the link (I got their phishing DM), and posted saying they'd changed their password Undecided

I've seen these sorts of things on MSN, where the MSN account has been hacked and posts messages to all their friends with something along the lines of "LOL! Is this you in the photo? [link]
Where then the user clicks the link and is prompted with a page where they must enter their MSN login information to access the photo.

Some people have too much time..
