New Mobile Game A Big Draw For Scammers

Posted on by beltzer

Draw Something, the Pictionary-style game that has recently topped 50 million downloads, has now attracted the eye of scammers.

A new Twitter scam is specifically targeting users that have tweeted about the game. The scammer’s Twitter account spams users with messages saying they have won a prize. If users click the included link, they are taken to a web site that harvests personal information.

For more information on this scam, see this post from the Sophos Naked Security blog.
