Social engineering attacks are attempts to steal sensitive information from a user’s Facebook or Twitter account and then exploit that information to compromise the computer’s hardware and security.
These attacks typically involve using the victim’s Facebook account to create a fake profile that appears to belong to the person being targeted.
The victim is then given an email address to send money to, which is then used to log into the victim account and send the money.
Social engineering is a particularly sophisticated and difficult type of attack.
While social engineering is very difficult to stop, it can be mitigated if a user has the proper security precautions in place.
Below are the top five ways to spot attacks on your Facebook or other social media accounts.1.
Fake account page and fake user name 2.
Fake Facebook account and fake username 3.
Fake Twitter account with fake profile 4.
Fake email address and fake Twitter handle 5.
Fake login information to your Facebook account from your Google Account1.
Make sure that you have the following information on your social media account: A verified email address or a Google account with your Facebook email address.2.
Make a note of what email address your user will be using when logging into their account.3.
Verify the email address used by the user to login to your account.4.
Verify if the user is using a fake Facebook or a fake Twitter account or if they are logging in with a fake username.5.
Verify that the user’s login information matches your social engineering attack.
In the following video, you’ll see a Facebook user being hacked by the attacker using the stolen username and Facebook password to access their Facebook account.
In addition to being able to access the user accounts, the attacker also gained access to the victim site’s private information and gained access back to the site’s front-end database.
The attacker then redirected the victim to a page on Facebook with the attacker’s fake Facebook account credentials.
Once the Facebook account was compromised, the user then had to go through a process that would take a little longer.
First, they had to change the username on their account to their actual Facebook name, then they had the opportunity to change their username to the attacker name on their own.
The process was repeated for the other three accounts that the attacker had access to.
After this process, the Facebook user had to log out of their Facebook and sign in to their new account to regain access to their Facebook page.
