By now everyone knows about the phishing scam that started attacking Twitter over the weekend. And most everyone else knows that a majority of those accounts have been harvested and are using DMs to push people to potential drive-by-malware sites.
It appears that the attackers, however, had different plans for the FOXNews (@foxnews) Twitter feed, which now sports a very un-Fox-like message, "Bill O Riley is gay" (stet) --clearly meaning the controversial Bill O'Reilly. Granted, it could be an opportunist taking advantage of the air cover the real attackers or giving, or even a crafty intern, but it's yet another proof point that Twitter is mainstream and that companies are not immune to the attacks being launched onto general users.
