WARNING - New Phishing Attack That Even Most Vigilant Users Could Fall For

Antoine Vincent Jebara recently discovered a new phishing campaign to which even the most vigilant users could fall victim.  An increasing amount of websites are offering the ability to log in using Facebook which is a generally safe way to access a website.  An attacker has taken the time to produce a site that looks identical to a Facebook prompt with green HTTPS, shadows, status and navigation bars, and even a link to Facebook.  It is actually a phishing scam that steals the victim's credentials when entered.  The only way to tell it is a phishing scam is to drag the prompt to the edge of the screen to make it disappear.  If the prompt disappears, it is a fake.
