Twitter Issues Alert About Phishing Scam

Twitter has issued a warning about phishing emails that tell users they have unread messages on the Twitter site.

The emails come from a email address and say that you have unread, delayed, or undelivered messages on Twitter, and asks you to click a link in the email to view the mystery messages.

The email itself does not appear to contain malware, Twitter said. The link in the e-mail actually takes users to a pharmaceutical site, though to get to that site, users are re-routed through several other sites, which could contain malware.
