Obvious Phishbait, But Someone Will Bite

A widespread phishing scam is circulating in Facebook Messenger, according to Jeff Parsons at Metro. The phishing messages simply contain the words, “Look what I found,” along with a link. If the user clicks the link, they’ll be taken to a spoofed Facebook login page that will steal their credentials. Notably, the attackers send the messages from compromised accounts of the target’s Facebook friends, which increases the appearance of legitimacy.
