OFFICIAL SECURITY BLOG

Watch out for messages on your Twitter feed like the ones below, because they’ll try their best to give your account a bad hair day:
Some of the (many) messages read as follows, and all are designed to entice the recipient into clicking:
There are others, but those seem to be the main ones and everything else is typically a variation on the above themes.
The links take end-users to a site informing them of the following:
“Your current session has ended
For security purposes you were forcibly signed out. For security purposes you need to verify your Twitter account, please login”
This is pretty similar to a spamrun we covered in February.
As before, change your password if you think you’ve already been affected by this one and clear up any rogue links lying around on your feed – your followers will thank you for it.
