A Twitter phishing attack is spreading rapidly today and is attempting to obtain Twitter login details via Direct Messages. If you receive a message – “Found a funny picture of you!” which is linked to a website called “mugweb.ru”, do not click on the link.

Clicking the link takes you to “twittelr.com/verify-/session/login-/”.

Users who click that link and enter their details are inadvertently letting spammers take over their accounts, which are then further used to spam the same Direct Message to all their friends.

The webpage at ‘twittelr.com’ is mimicking the genuine Twitter login page. DO NOT enter your Twitter credentials on this phishing page as doing so will give the hackers total control over your Twitter account.

If you have entered your Twitter credentials at twittelr.com you should immediately change your Twitter password. If you cannot login you should request a password reset from Twitter immediately.
