Trend Blogs on the Dangers of URL Shortening

Trend Micro’s blog entry about the Cligs blog url redirection takes a funny twist.
For those not reading all the other security blogs, Cligs is a URL shortening service like Tinyurl. They got hacked, so all of their URL redirections were sent to one specific, though fortunately not malicious, website.
Trend’s blog entry was automatically posted to their Twitter account using Twitterfeed. Twitterfeed of course shortened the URL automatically using TinyURL. Could have been worse, they could have been shortening the URL with Cligs. LOL
