Do not click and delete the message: A new phishing attack is spreading again in the last day on Facebook – and is attacking Israeli users. This is a link to an impersonating site that is distributed in a simple way – an innocent link to a video from the YouTube site, which reads “It looks like you”.
The national cyber system issued a statement this morning (Friday) and said that many reports had been received since last night about the same phishing attack, and that the goal is to steal Facebook’s login information from us. To maintain a level of credibility, the message comes from one of our friends within Facebook, and clicking on the link leads to a malicious page that looks like a Facebook login page, and its purpose is to make you enter login information.
After entering the details, the user’s Facebook account is hacked and the message is distributed to all his friends. At this time, there is no indication of harm downloading and the link is currently unavailable. The National Cyber Network recommends not clicking on the link and deleting the message. Did you enter details? Immediately change email and password and enable 2-step verification.
What else can be done? “There is no one answer. What we already know is that the person behind it steals your Facebook password and of course automatically takes advantage of the fact to hack into the account and send messages on your behalf – automatically, do not worry about photos and posts it does not interest the attackers,” says Ido Naor, CEO To the Cyber Security Joes Company.
“They probably make a lot of money from this whole pasting process. It starts with selling the information, selling the clicks, creating information mobility, advertising exposure and more. The information they have in this viral pasting is worth a lot of money. Contact a friend or acquaintance and ask for something weird like” Click Here “, ‘I sent you a code, give it to me’ and the like – stop! Think for a second and contact the same person to find out what it is.”
Naor adds, “You came to a Facebook login page? It doesn’t make sense. Facebook keeps a lot of information on your device. They don’t need your password every time. You already know that. If you come across a login page, something is wrong here. Especially on the phone. “Stop for a second, think. Just enter a fictitious password – if it worked – it’s of course phishing.”
