We’ve seen several “Facebook recovery” accounts on Facebook, some of them sharing a shortened URL masking a phishing page, asking credentials and payment details. Some of them were even offering technical support services.
When we see posts online of “free video streaming”, they are usually on sites that offer free registration and nonexclusive posts. Official sites of celebrities as spam launchpads are unimaginable. There are, of course, some exceptions.
Google released a new Chrome extension designed to combat phishing – but the launch hasn’t gone without a hitch. We take a look at the problem, and suggest some additional Chrome extensions for additional privacy / security.
