According to a report of Symantec’s security researchers, hackers are spreading Adult Links through Twitter. Hackers are mainly targeting high profile twitter accounts. Approximately 2500 high profile Twitter accounts are under control of these cyber crooks. The links which they are spreading, are directly tricking the victims to visit the adult sites, which they have created. When a victim will visit that website, there will be a premium signup link form where hackers are collecting credit card details and personal details of users.

Hackers are stealing credentials of high profile twitter accounts through phishing attacks. Once they got the access of account, they are changing profile pictures by setting an adult photo of woman.

Satnam Narang (Senior Security Response Manager of Symantec) said, Hackers are offering free sign-ups to users, which is actually a trap for victims. When user spends some time on the website, they ask him to update his account from free to premium. They are charging $4.00 to each user for a single premium account.

 

How Hackers are hacking Twitter Accounts?

Satnam Narang said, Weak Passwords and Re use of passwords is the main reason behind the hack of these twitter accounts. The problem of same password for all accounts should also be a reason. The usernames and passwords from other breached databases are helping them to hack twitter accounts. Most of the hacked accounts are very older and their owners are not doing any type of activities from a long type. More than 75 percent hacked accounts are four years old. Rest of the account belongs to year 2007. Hackers are collecting personal information of users from social media and e-commerce websites, which is useful for them in hacking accounts.

 

“To avoid these type of attacks, Always use a unique and strong password with combination of numbers, alphabets and special Characters.Never fill all your personal information on public social profiles."
