A researcher in Cybersecurity has been warned of the latest and most innovative phishing campaign in the last month who has shared the details of the similar attack that is specifically 7 done to attack the mobile users. This attack is quite a lot similar to the previous campaign and the new phishing attack is based on the sole idea of a malicious web page that mimics in the look and feel of the browser window that could easily trick

the most watchful users into disclosing the login credentials to the hackers or the attackers. A new video shared by the co-founder and CEO of Myki, the password managing software, reveals how the attackers can reproduce the native iOS behaviour along with the browser URL bar and the tab switching animation effects available in Safari in a true and realistic manner. This can trick the users in to pushing them to a web page and present them fake login pages without opening and redirecting the users to a brand new tab.

In the video, it has been clearly showed that a fake Facebook Login page has been provided to the users mimicking the original Facebook Login Page and displaying logo of the most well-known website, Airbnb. The users get trapped into such scams and end up providing their login details which later proves that the link was a phishing link. Such advanced phishing attacks are not only limited to Facebook or Safari or even just iOS mobile users, but it can target the other android devices or any other social media sites as well. Cyber criminals can target various platforms by the creation of a website that automatically serves various versions of the phishing pages depending on the browser and the apps and obviously the mobile device operating system the victims use. You must use password managers and enable two factor authentications in order to limit the use and trapping yourself in the phishing links.
