Received a mysterious message from a friend of mine via Twitter Direct Message. It said, "Did you see that pic of you? lol" and then it gave a link to click...
It didn't use my name, wasn't any more specific than that, and even though I was burning with curiosity, for some reason I was reluctant to click the link..
Finally I got up enough nerve (and tech savvy) to go to her Twitter account, and guess what I found!
"If you have received a message from me via Twitter, DO NOT OPEN the attachment. My account was hacked."
I want to pat myself on the back! I wasn't OVERLY paranoid, but just the RIGHT AMOUNT of PARANOID!
(Reminds me of the old saying: "It's not being paranoid if they really ARE out to get you...")
