No one is immune online to the sinister behaviour of Hackers.
Now Twitter has been hit by a furious round of hacks as reported by the BBC.
33 High Porfile accounts hacked including Barack Obama & Britney Spears
“The celebrities, including US CNN broadcaster Rick Sanchez, awoke on Monday morning to find their Twitter accounts – which allows users to post short updates of less than 140 characters – with some bizarre and, in some cases pornographic messages”.
The security breach happened when hackers broke into tools used by the Twitter support team to help people edit the email address associated with their account.
The potential damage is huge to celebrities who’s reputation could be destroyed by 140 characters.
The phishing scam, which affected thousands of users, invited people to click on a link to a fake Twitter login.
The moral of the story here is PAY ATTENTION to the URL you are logging into.
