I received an unusual private message “Bad blog going around about you, heard or seen it yet?” from one of my followers. Unfortunately my follower fell into a traditional Twitter phishing and his account is surely now compromised.
As you can see in the screenshot the link point to “http://airtar.ru“, a domain name registered since the 2011-10-13 by “[email protected]“. The web site is hosted on 188.8.131.52 in AS4134 ChinaNet GuiZhou Province and the hosting web server redirect you directly on “http://www.twittelr.com/r/“.

“twittelr.com” domain name is registered since the 2011-09-23 by “yu zhang [email protected]“. The web site is hosted on 184.108.40.206 in AS4134 China Telecom Yunnan Province. Some funny host name are hosted on the same name server than “twittelr.com“, like “xn--fiqs8s13n4ywnyd.net“.
Accessing “http://www.twittelr.com/r/” will redirect you to “http://www.twittelr.com/timed_out_session-/“.
You will see this phishing page how is quiet good in term of design.
If you provide your login and password the form will post all your informations on “http://www.twittelr.com/app/login2.php” and then redirect you to “http://www.twittelr.com/status/error/” page, but it is to late.
If you access directly on the root directory of “twittelr.com” you will observe an chinese under-construction page 🙂
