Commtouch Labs has detected large volumes of phony “unread twitter message” emails.  All links route via intermediate sites to the same pharmacy site.  Most of the links are being flagged in browsers as malware or (incorrectly) phishing.

Our advice – mouse over any email links if you aren’t sure about the authenticity of an email.
