Intensifies Twitter phishing protection by adopting standard DMARC

Phishing emails often pose as submitted by the sites in the majors instead of princes from distant countries, but Twitter has implemented a new measure to end the fakes that borrow in their name. Costolo and Co. announced that, earlier this month, began to take advantage of a technology called DMARC establishing a way for providers to authenticate email senders and reject Posts by impostors. Although DMARC memory needs the support of email services including AOL costumes (which happens to be our headquarters), Gmail, Hotmail / Outlook and Yahoo already make use of it. According to Twitter, now is “extremely unlikely” that most users receive emails pretending to be sent from an address Twitter.com. Sorry to disappoint you, but it seems you have to get your fix of foreign lotteries ads elsewhere.
