C4ISRNET: Marines want tool to identify fake social media accounts posing as senior personnel

C4ISRNET: Marines want tool to identify fake social media accounts posing as senior personnel. “The U.S. Marine Corps wants a commercial off-the-shelf tool to identify social media accounts that pose a threat to personnel and the Marines Corps Enterprise Network. According to a request for quotation released Aug. 20, the goal of the effort is to identify ‘evil twin’ social media accounts, or accounts pretending to be key personnel, general officers and senior executive service employees. The RFQ claimed these fake accounts are sending malicious links to service members, as well as extorting information and money while posing as key members of the Corps.”
