Do Facebook Phishers Prefer Macs? Posted by Sean @ 15:21 GMT

Facebook phishing has been on the increase lately.

It's nothing new however, PhishTank.org has been tracking Facebook as a "Targeted Brand" for quite some time.

Here's a screenshot of the real Facebook login page:

Facebook login, real

And here's a screenshot of a fake courtesy of PhishTank:

Facebook login, fake

Notice the difference?

There's a grammatical mistake, "We helps you"… and then the fake login page looks as if it is being rendered by the Safari browser.

So perhaps phishers prefer using Macs?
