Weird e-mail

Post by sunmtn » Sep 24, 2013 9:18 am

I received a weird e-mail saying it was a direct message from Twitter claiming to be Oriental Outpost. I absent-mindedly clicked on it and it went nowhere. I am currently running extra scans on my computer.

Being that I have not posted anything on Twitter in about a year, I'm thinking it was some malicious bastard doing something nefarious.

I'll check my Twitter account.

Looks like my account was hijacked. When I entered my username and password, I got a special message. Twitter is making me do all kinds of re-authentication stuff now.
