UPDATED! I've been hacked on Twitter!

So what should you do if you fall victim to a phishing scam turned social network worm? Be a friend and alert your contacts that messages posted are not actually from you. In general, the ABCs of proper etiquette after a normal social networking scam are:

* Acknowledge the attack to anyone who might have been adversely impacted;

* Be detailed: Tell them what message they might have received as a result of the malware/phishing and what might have happened as a result;

* Caution your contacts: Use this as an opportunity to remind everyone that just because they think a message comes from someone they know, there really is no way of telling for sure. If they ever do click a link that then leads to a login page or to a video codec install, they should close the page immediately and contact their friend via some other method to inquire (and possibly alert them) about the seemingly malicious link.
