Warning: New Facebook Phishing site on the risePieter posted in "Privacy & security". 3 years, 12 months ago
A new Facebook phising scam in the form of a fake Facebook login page has emerged yesterday and it’s making ten thousands of victims. When you enter your username and password at the identical-looking login form at fbaction.net, your account will immediately be hijacked, your password changed and all your friends will receive an e-mail from you with a link to the same fake login page causing the propagation of this scam to grow exponentially.
The site in question has been reported to many anti-phishing services by now and it’s being blocked by most popular browsers with phishing filters enabled, but people with their guards down are still vulnerable. To be on the safe side, always log in to Facebook by typing “facebook.com” in your browser’s address field. Or at least verify if the URL starts with “http://(www.)facebook.com/“
