Twitter security problem

A new wave of security scares have hit social networking sites - Twitter in particular but Facebook is also liable, for example.


Apparently, a number of Twitter users have admitted to receiving a message, also known as tweet, from someone calling themselves TwitViewer. The message informs the user of those people who have viewed the user's profile. Within the message is a link to the TwitViewer website and it's here that you are asked to input your details. Whereupon, your login and password details will be promptly stolen.


"If you gave your login and password info to TwitViewer, we strongly suggest you change your password now," advised Twitter.


Speaking to the Telegraph website, Greg Day, a security analyst with McAfee, said that, "The best thing is to be aware and to keep an eye on your account to make sure you're not being diverted to somewhere where the codes have been tampered with. Make sure you have a secure password - not something that's easy to guess or tap into."
