Facebook Phishing Attack-don’t login to fbstarter.com or fbaction.net!

Milne library has been alerted to a phishing attack that has broken out on Facebook.

Facebook users are receiving messages which appear to come from a friend who asks them to visit fbaction.net or fbstarter.com. Don’t do this. From a page that looks like you’ll be logging into Facebook, scammers can collect your login and password.

For more information see the article about this attack in TechCrunch.

If you feel your Facebook account has been compromised, get help from Facebook’s Help Center.
