Twitter was hit with another phishing attack this week. Just last night in fact, I got this message in my Twitter DM inbox.

I knew I was already logged in so I quickly clicked away and notified my friend that she had been hacked. Earlier this week Twitter was hit with a similar phishing scam, which after gaining your login deets, sent out mass messages about herbal Viagra. I'm sure your friends would have loved that!
