Pinont.com - No Need To Panic

| | Comments (0)

There have been a few discussions on security lists and forums regarding a wave of spam comments on Facebook that (for the most part) mention a site called Pinont.com. There were some theories that this might be some kind of worm attack - however, one of my researchers told me last night that a relative was apparently phished and (not long after) comments such as these started appearing from the relatives account:

As the title states, no need to panic - it's highly unlikely this is anything other than somebody harvesting accounts the old fashioned way then promoting an endless deluge of pill websites. Yes, Phishing sucks - but for now, it doesn't look like Pinont.com is the Herald of the End of Days or anything equally dramatic..
