Phishing Scam Targets Facebook Users
A fake page includes .ru after the facebook.com address.
F-Secure is warning of a new phishing scam that tries to convince users that they're being redirected to a legitimate Facebook application.
"Instead of landing on the app page, users instead find themselves on a genuine-looking Facebook login page, where they are asked to re-authenticate their account by entering their e-mail address and password," writes SecurityNewDaily's Matt Liebowitz.
"But if users look carefully at the login page, they realize the URL in the browsers menu bar includes '.ru' after the regular Facebook.com address, meaning its not a legitimate Facebook site, and any information entered can be easily swiped by the cybercriminals perpetrating the phishing scam," Liebowitz writes.
