“Your Photos Are being Used” phishing scam targeting Facebook users
Another day, another Facebook phishing scam. This one comes in the form of a warning sent by a friend: “OMG YOUR PHOTOS ARE BEING USED ON THIS SITE.”
They are instructed to log into the social network in order to see the page (and the photos), but those that do will only forward their login credentials to the criminals behind the scheme.
“Any urgent-sounding messages sent your way which suggest imminent personal embarrassment of some description should be treated with healthy skepticism,” TEXTinstructs Malwarebytes’ Chris Boyd.
If you have fallen for this or a similar scam, change your password immediately. If your account has already been hijacked, report the fact and let Facebook help you regain control of it.
