New phishing scam on Twitter: “rofl this you on here”

A new and vicious scam is doing the rounds on Twitter right now. Seems like a lot of people are falling for a simple fake sign-in page judging from search results for “rofl this you on here“.

The scam starts with a DM from someone you follow that says

“rofl this you on here?”

The link takes you to a fake Twitter login page that looks like the old login page. If you enter your username and password there the site sends a direct message to everybody who follows you with that same “rofl this you on here?” message. God knows what else they do with your account once they have access.
