I have found a lot of messages asking me to click on a link to get more followers, you may have received some too, but don’t click on the links!

Make sure your passwords are strong and don’t post anything personal.

If you find any messages asking to click on a link, spam them right away and permanently bin them. If someone asks you for any personal info, don’t answer and spam them.

  1. Thanks for the heads up. I have spoken elsewhere about the open source code that WordPress is built on. I would never, for example, enter my actual credit card information into any WordPress site. The .php exploits are easy to do because the newer code for the platform is not too finely tuned.
