Facebook 'fbaction.net' phishing attack in progress

A new phishing attack is underway against Facebook users

A new phishing attack is underway against Facebook users. TechCrunch details the attack, which begins with an email to your inbox that looks like the standard notification of a message from a Facebook friend:

The message body will apparently read something like this (with YOURFRIEND being replaced by the name of a friend of yours):

YOURFRIEND sent you a message.

Subject: Hello

"Visit http://www.facebook.com/l/4253f;http://fbaction.net/"

Twitter and Google Trends have already lit up with terms related to the attack as well. A Facebook spokesperson said in an emailed statement, "We are aware of this phishing domain and have already begun to take action." For now, watch out for the fbaction.net domain.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
