Another Twitter Worm: cleaningUpMikey

Right after the StalkDaily Twitter worm was fixed up there’s another. It’s called cleaningUpMikey. The way it works is a little different:

If you receive the Twitter message shown below and click on the profile, some code runs in your web browser and it starts sending the same message to others. You don’t need to go to a 3rd party web site, making it a little different (and much riskier).

The Twitter message is:

Twitter, hire Mikeyy!

If you receive this, remove it or ignore it (depending on your client).

Incidentally, Mikey is the person who wrote the StalkDaily Twitter worm. And it’s unconfirmed who wrote this one.
