Facebook Slammed with Another Phishing Attack

Brennon Slattery

"Facebook was hit with yet another phishing attack yesterday as malicious e-mails went to some of the social networking site's 200 million users. The attack, which Facebook is actively fighting, asked members to leave Facebook and access outside sites that then stole user names and passwords.

The malicious e-mail messages were of the garden variety for scams: poor grammar, misspellings, and a request to visit an external site that included the domain name www.151.im, www.121.im or www.123.im (do yourself a favor and don't click on those links). Once there, users were asked to log in again with their Facebook user ID and password, and boom -- suddenly, your information is released and becomes a vehicle for spamming."
