browser-based threat: Facebook phishing scam

This URL was first detected by ConcealBrowse on March 14th. Later that day, one other security vendor began reporting on it and it is currently marked by six vendors for being phishing and malicious. ConcealBrowse successfully intervened with a 30% risk assessment, citing proximity, phishing, and suspicious behavior.

This page attempts to gather personal information about a user to initiate a scam. The URL appears to be directly from Facebook, and users may not view the page initially as phishing due to the form not asking for credentials. However, if the user were to enter their personal information, they’d receive a call from a number claiming to be Facebook. They may be asked for credentials or financial information to gain access to their account, but this is a scam for malicious actors to gain access instead.

Conceal Recommends: This URL should be blocked by policy. A browser security solution like ConcealBrowse is the best way to keep user information safe from these types of emerging threats.

browser-based threat: cryptocurrency scam

This page was first detected by ConcealBrowse on March 13th, the same day two other security vendors began flagging the URL for phishing. Currently there are 13 vendors that have identified its malicious behavior. ConcealBrowse successfully intervened on behalf of an end-user prior to the site’s removal with a 14% risk assessment.

This site hosted a common cryptocurrency scam. Cryptocurrencies scams aim to steal sensitive credential information to steal money from their victims. Users enter their personal wallet information under the belief that the site is only being used to house all their wallets in one place. However, the information will instead be used to gain access to the money and transfer it to different accounts before the user is able to react.

Conceal Recommends: This page is now removed, but the URL should still be blocked in the case that it is activated again. Cryptocurrencies carry a high risk, so consider implementing a content block on company devices and implementing an acceptable use policy regarding these sites.

browser-based threat: Document Sharing Phishing Scam

This URL was first detected by ConcealBrowse on March 18th, with five security vendors initially reporting it for phishing on March 13th. Currently, there are seven vendors flagging this URL as phishing and malicious. ConcealBrowse intervened with a 30% risk assessment, citing proximity to other malicious pages.

This page is part of a common document sharing phishing campaign. These scams are usually designed to target specific companies by sending emails to their targeted victims that appear to be from known organizations. When a user clicks on the link on the webpage, they will be redirected to the malicious site that will attempt to steal their credentials. ConcealBrowse’s intervention keeps the site in isolation even when redirects occur, keeping users from being able to enter their credentials.

Conceal Recommends: This URL should be blocked. ConcealBrowse’s use of isolation technology helps prevent users for falling for credential theft from suspicious sites.
