Clever Phishing Attack Enlists Google Translate to Spoof Login Page
Akamai researchers have uncovered a new and unique phishing campaign. As in all phishing campaigns, the threat actors are out to obtain sensitive information from victims. In this case, they want to trick victims into filling out their Facebook and Google login credentials on a fake website.
However, instead of creating a spoofed website that looks like the real thing, the crooks have found a way to hide their fake login page behind a Google translate page. This means that victims will be visiting a legitimate Google domain, which is more likely to convince them that they can safely fill out the requested information.
