Facebook phishing: How to stay safe from new scam that pads URLs with hyphens
The new phishing attempt by hackers targets smartphone owners most of whom are Facebook users.
If you frequently use the Facebook on your smartphones beware! Researchers have uncovered a new phishing attempt by hackers that targets smartphone owners most of whom are Facebook users.
Security researchers from PhishLabs say the new tactic relies on the vulnerability that mobile browsers have very narrow URL address bars, which prevents users from viewing the entire contents of a link. Taking advantage of this hackers are padding URLs with sub-domains and hyphens, which make links look authentic on mobile devices but in reality will redirect them to dodgy sites.
