The Twitter Blog reported last week that people are receiving emails which contain links to a phishing site asking you to enter your login details. I decided to check it out today and was surpised to see that the entire twitter interface has been converted to that of Facebook, which means that they are now getting ready for a Facebook phishing scam! Good news is that Internet Explorer (with Website Checking Enabled), Firefox 3 (Firefox 2 did not block the site) and Google Chrome all display big warnings.
Phishing Scams have been a major problem for large corporations. As of today there aren’t any sure fire solutions. IE, Firefox and Opera as well today implement a check to see if the site is fraudulent or not.
