It seems that there’s no end to the number of ways that online criminals will try to rip you off. This time it’s a Facebook application that attempts to steal your login information.
It looks innocent enough. It starts with a notification that a friend has sent you an email message. But when you click on the link, you’re taken to a bogus Facebook login screen, asking for your ID and password. Fill it out and you’ve given your information to a third party.
If you use Facebook I urge you to check out Amit’s post. I don’t think anyone can be completely safe from every threat, but it’s important to pay attention to what’s going on on your screen.
