Twitter hit by Phishers

What!? I've been freaking phished!

Twitter has been a target of phishers. Phishers are people who fake a site in an attempt to trick users to believing that it is the real site, and giving out their user and password. Commonly, e-banking sites and such sites were targets, but it seems that it is not the case anymore. To prevent yourself from being a target, take a close look at your URL when you log in, especially if you have been redirected to the Twitter home page.
