A company specializing in computer security has cautioned that malevolent web-links are currently disseminating across Twitter resulting in malicious software, which can harvest the virtual currency Bitcoin. GMA News published this dated September 6, 2011.

Actually WRS (Web Reputation Services) recently came across malevolent condensed URLs that were spammed throughout Twitter, apparently having one .JPEG file hosted on certain Facebook domain. But, rather than being an image file, the .JPEG was one executable, which Trend Micro detected as WORM_KOLAB.SMQX. An online search on Twitter to obtain the picture archive showed up the latest list that included the end-users sending out the same malevolent web-link.
