A successful phishing attack on Facebook has been uncovered by Netcraft researchers. The phishers used a page on a facebook subdomain that looked like a legitimate Facebook verification form to deceive victims into submitting their information.
The phishers have registered Facebook apps, and have managed to load the form inside it via iframes. The form is hosted on the crooks’ own servers, which also uses HTTPS, so no warnings about unsecure connections will pop up.
To convince suspecting users who might enter wrong information to test the system, the form returns an “incorrect credentials” notification for the first time and on a second attempt forwards the submitted logon information to the phishers’ servers quietly on the background and tells the user that Facebook will contact them in 24 hours.
