Twitter Phishing Attack Claims High Profile Brits
News of another Twitter phishing attack is pretty boring stuff, we're well aware. News of a Twitter phishing attack that got a few high-profile individuals to give up their account information, that's another thing all together.
Which is exactly what happened with the recent "This You???" phishing attack. Mashable is reporting that apparently, in an effort to say that yes, it was indeed them,BBC correspondent Nick Higham, Guardian audio guy Matt Wells, and British Secretary for Energy and Climate Change Ed Miliband all (along with thousands of others) had their accounts compromised in the latest attack.
Either that or the ol' Nickster isn't the stud we all though he was.
(Yeah, I'll pass on the "stiff upper lip" joke, thanks)
