A week or so ago, I was scanning my Twitter profile feed in search of another tweet when I saw a slew of posts with the title “Check out this link” followed by a Facebook link.
Each tweet had the same title but different link associations. At first I thought my account had maybe been hacked.
Not wanting to click the link that followed “Check out this link”, I created a controlled virtual environment to view the link from to control it should it be a virus, malware or ransomware.
Even though it was posted on Twitter, one can’t take chances with blindly clicking links.
Nevertheless, I clicked the link only to be taken to one of my daily expired auction pages. Then, I had an aha moment.
