Phishing Site Targets FC Barcelona Fans
A new Web page was specifically designed to trick supporters of the soccer team into disclosing their Facebook login credentials.
Symantec researchers recently came across a new phishing Web site that specifically targets fans of FC Barcelona.
"FC Barcelona is one of the most successful football clubs in the world, millions of people worldwide admiring its achievements and its talented players such as Lionel Messi, Carles Puyol, Gerard Pique, or Francesc Fabregas," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs. "Phishers started relying on the club’s fame and created a fake website called Facebook F.C.B, which contains a picture of one of the players and the organization’s official logo, Symantec reports."
"The middle of the webpage displays a couple of textboxes where a Facebook username and a password can be entered," Kovacs writes. "Once the unsuspecting user enters his credentials, he is automatically redirected to the official FC Barcelona Facebook page."
