Twitter Posts Link to Android Malware


Symantec researchers are warning of a recent increase in Twitter messages that link to sites distributing the Opfake malware for Android devices.

"One Twitter campaign identified by researchers sent over 130,000 malicious tweets from 100 accounts," writes Threatpost's Christopher Brook.

"Several of the Twitter accounts have since been suspended and Symantec said it is working with Twitter to disable accounts that are sending out malicious links," Brook writes.
