Identity thieves are using a new trick to impersonate Facebook’s security team and steal account information and credit card data from users of the world’s most popular social network.
According to Kaspersky Lab’s David Jacoby…the attackers aren’t simply trying to lure the victim to a phishing site. Instead, they are compromising Facebook accounts and changing the profile picture and account name and sending warnings that appear to come from Facebook’s security team. This is where the data gets pilfered, Jacoby said, warning that a second layer of the attack will attempt to trick users into entering credit card numbers, including CSC/CVV code.
