The latest Twitter phishing attempt is from twitter member who sends out a direct message saying “look what this bitch said about you on her twitter page” with a link to a shortened url which redirects to http://error-twitter.com/. This is not a Twitter site.

Whois list the site as:

   Referral URL: http://www.internet.bs
   Name Server: NS1.CYBERCASTCO.COM

The best way to defeat phishing sites is to use a password you can’t even remember along with your browser’s password feature. I use an 80 character alpha-numeric password with symbols. I couldn’t enter the password if I wanted to. If you can’t do that because your device does not have a password saving feature, just make sure you never enter your user name and password into a site where you have been redirected.
