One of my friends has just alerted me to the possibility of a new phishing attempt on Facebook that has surfaced in the last couple of hours.
He (Rick) said that he was receiving messages that linked to a website called FBAction.net that actually displays a fake Facebook login.
Strangely, however, doing a ‘whois’ lookup on that domain shows that it is, as yet, unregistered and available for sale.
Therefore, I would imagine that the domain name has actually been spoofed and leads elsewhere. (If anyone has a copy of the message can they mouse over the link to see what it says?)
In any event, it seems that entering your details on the fake Facebook login page will lead to the same spam message being sent to all your contacts.
Whilst there doesn’t appear to be any evidence of a worm, virus or other malware on the site that could change so be on your guard for this Facebook message.
If you get locked out of your account, or have any other concerns, then contact Facebook directly for assistance.
