Phishing attacks are targeting your social network accounts

Scammers are stealing these accounts to use them to spread disinformation, run cryptocurrency scams, or sell them online to others. MalwareHunterTeam says that the two most common social media phishing scams are fake verification pages and fake copyright violation pages. The former scam promises users a verified checkmark if they provide their username and password. The latter scam warns users that they have 24 hours to log into their accounts to review and dispute a fake copyright claim. It’s important to note that these phishing scams also try to steal your email account which can be used by scammers to gain access to other accounts. The best way to combat against these scams is to make sure you have two-factor authentication setup on your accounts, including your email, and to never have the same password across different accounts.
