There is an ongoing phishing scam going on these days that is hitting  Facebook users that can result in crashing your computers or mobile phones and steal your passwords? If not, beware, do not open the files ending with “.at” or “.be”.
The phishing scam is being run through the spam messages which steals the sensitive information of the users. In the attack, the messages are circulated with a subject line of “Hello” and a prompt to check out “areps.at” or other URLs ending in “.at”.
The mails with the subject line “Look at This” and links like — goldbase.be, greenbuddy.be, silvertag.be, picoband.be — leads tomalicious websites, which if visited, could download malware onto computers through a “driveby download” application.
The URL connectivity, before being blocked directs the visitor to a fake Facebook page and the mail ID and password are stolen as soon as it is logged-in again. According to the blog.Facebook the password in such cases should be changed immediately and the same message should be sent across to one’s Facebook acquaintance.
