Antipatia Facebook Button Scam - Come proteggere il vostro PC?

Facebook truffe sono stati intorno dal momento che Facebook è diventato virale. Abbiamo visto truffatori cercando e spesso riuscendo a rendere gli utenti fanno clic sui video danneggiati, immagini, e collegamenti. L'ultima truffa Facebook, tuttavia, coinvolge il tasto tanto atteso 'antipatia'. Come probabilmente sapete, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg shared the network’s plan to include the new button in a Q&La. Even though the name of the button was not revealed then, cyber crooks have already figured out a way to make a scam out of it.

What is Facebook Dislike Button Scam About? Come funziona?

Poco detto, the scam prompts users to click on a link saying something like:

‘Get newly introduced Facebook dislike button on your profile.’

The scam is displayed in the users’ newsfeeds and pretends to be invite-only. If the user is tricked into clicking, he will land on a fake page that is masqueraded as a Facebook website. The scamming website has instructions on how to share the page with other users by sending it to five groups. The implied method is nothing we haven’t seen before. Crooks typically seek the chance to multiply their scams the quickest way possible – through sharing it with Facebook groups.

It is easy to assume that clicking on the links causes redirects to two pages that have nothing to do with Facebook or its ‘dislike’ button. Both of the destinations attempt to obtain information from users by making them sign up. Se si terra su un tale pagina, you should navigate away from it as soon as possible. Poi, scanning your system is usually required, because scamming websites can affect your system in multiple ways.

How Can I Stay Protected against Scamming Websites?

Scamming websites are all over the Internet. They seek to exploit uneducated users who are gullible and easily fall into frauds. By taking part in an online scam, you can be affected in various ways. This is a list of possible outcomes that may happen, if you have clicked on corrupted links/videos/some other media content:

If you interact with any of the displayed content, things can get much uglier.
  • Your Windows Registry can be affected, as well as other system settings. Some scamming pages are employed to carry through drive-by downloads. Such downloads may be silent, which means that you won’t be notified of them. Di conseguenza, your system can be flooded with potentially unwanted software and even malware. Unwanted software can target the browser and act as a browser hijacker by changing the user’s home page, pagina di ricerca, pagina di errore, or new tab page without his consent.
