I recently wrote about how social engineering and human nature is used to trick us into downloading files which infiltrate our computers. When I signed on to Facebook today the first thing I noticed was an obviously malware post. I’d like to think all of you would know immediately not to click the this link. I deleted the post so others wouldn’t click on it and phoned our young friend who posted it. Not surprisingly she had no idea how it was posted and as I suggested she signed on to change her Facebook password.
Would you have detected this as an obvious scam?
Even I know that Justin Bieber is too young for Miley Cyrus.
As a researcher I clicked on this link to see where it went. So in case you’re curious, here is what happens.
