Twitter Hit By StalkDaily Worm


TechCrunch Twitter Hit By StalkDaily Worm A bad week for Twitter just got even worse. Twitter has apparently been infected by a worm originating from the owners of the website StalkDaily.com (Note:Do not visit this website, as may cause your computer to become infected). At this point details are scant, but it appears that visiting the Twitter profile page of an infected user can lead your profile to become infected as well (some reports say that the worm modifies your ‘About Me’ section to include a link to the worm).
 The attack appears to have originated early this morning, when a handful of blog posts popped up detailing the worm. However, it is only now hitting critical mass, with hundreds of related Tweets appearing on Twitter search in the last few minutes alone. Twitter’s official Spam watching account updated this morning stating that the company was aware of the issue but that it had been mostly resolved, and just issued another update stating that it was aware of the worm’s resurgence this afternoon.
