Has anyone faced a hoax issue on Facebook yet? If you have a Facebook account, then be a little careful. There has been a major spur of phishing attacks on Facebook to steal usernames and passwords and spam your friends.
How is it being done?
Facebook’s mail system is being used by the attackers to send messages to the users, enticing them to go to – fbaction.net – a site that duplicates Facebook’s log-in screen.
The word has been around that Facebook has blocked this URL and this has hopefully brought an end to the entire nuisance.
Better safe than sorry…
It is still very important that we REMEMBER NOT TO LOG into a page that claims to be “Facebook” unless the URL is www.facebook.com. Wouldn’t hurt being just a little extra-cautious!
