Phishers are up again with a new target i.e. “your Twitter password” — Several Twitter users received an scam email saying you’ve a received a Direct Messages with a link that redirect to a site masquerading as the Twitter front page. If you didn't look at the URL of this false Twitter page, then you might not have noticed that it was actually just a page on the domain http://twitter.access-logins.com which was also faking Facebook's front page.
