Tunis/Tunisia — The National Agency for Computer Security (ANSI) warns in a press release against a new wave of pishing on Facebook, spoofing several Tunisian companies and brands, both private and public.
According to the agency, "these pages, designed by hackers, ask users to register by making them believe that they can win prizes. In reality, these registration operations are carried out via malicious websites with the graphic charter of the spoofed companies, or even Facebook, whose objective is to "hack" the Facebook access parameters of the victims."
Accordingly, ANSI advises citizens to follow the following recommendations:
- Ensure the authenticity of business Facebook pages by inspecting the "blue verification badge" next to the title.
- Contact companies to inquire about the reliability of published games before playing them.
- Install the Web Of Trust (WOT), Netcraft and adblockplus extensions in your web browser to check the trustworthiness of visited websites and block dubious advertisements.
