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:
Domain Name: ERROR-TWITTER.COM Registrar: INTERNET.BS CORP. Whois Server: whois.internet.bs Referral URL: http://www.internet.bs Name Server: NS1.CYBERCASTCO.COM Name Server: NS2.CYBERCASTCO.COM Status: clientTransferProhibited Updated Date: 22-jun-2010 Creation Date: 15-jun-2010 Expiration Date: 15-jun-2011
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.
