Facebook Users Targeted In New Phishing Attacks

This afternoon, Facebook users began receiving emails appearing to be from Facebook carrying an invitation from a friend. Following the link though, takes the recipient to a phishing site.

Reports say the scam has been spreading quickly primarily because it all looks very legitimate. The email itself spoofs Facebook and features the name of the recipientˇ¦s actual friend, who appears to have sent them a message.

The body of the message itself says simply ˇ§Helloˇ¨ in the subject line and provides a link that redirects to fbaction.net. That site spoofs Facebookˇ¦s login page, prompting users to enter their user name and password.
