Whoops, Some CBS Twitter Accounts Got Hacked and Spat Out Virus-y Links

Twitter hacks are an unfortunate reality of every day social media life. Today, it was CBS's 60 Minutes and 48 Hours accounts that took the hit and started dishing out some linkbait-y tweets with a virus-laiden garnish. Careful what you click.

Unlike other Twitter hacks of late, this one wasn't particularly funny, and instead leaned towards the straight-up malicious end of the spectrum. The hacktastic payload included not only misinformation, but a viral payload as well, though that's not uncommon for the spammier side of Twitter. [All Things D]
