It seems that hackers have devised some really interesting ways of phishing login credentials on Facebook. Apparently, this is being done with the help of a very authentic-looking Facebook app called ‘Verify Pages.’ The app is created by a hacker but with the Facebook Security logo on it, it looks very real and has led to the hacking of multiple Facebook pages.

Once any user browses to the app’s page, he is able to see the Facebook Security logo on the top of the page. The overall look of the app’s main screen also tends to fool the user into believing that it’s the real deal.

It then asks the user to fill in a form where the user is required to provide his Page URL, Page Name, Email and Password. Naturally, once the owner of the app, which is the hacker, gets this information, he is able to access the victim’s account directly and then hack his pages.

The rather unfortunate news are that so far, three major Facebook pages with millions of fans have been hacked. The URLs of these pages are listed below:

  • https://www.facebook.com/funHETU 
  • https://www.facebook.com/getInspiration
  • https://www.facebook.com/bySmiles

Once these pages had been taken over by the hacker, he started spamming them with posts from his own blog and Facebook page. And by leveraging the user base of the hacked pages, he has apparently gained 96,000 followers in the last two weeks alone.

According to the folks over at ‘The Hacker News’, they have informed Facebook’s security team about the whole issue. Let’s hope that the social network is able to resolve the problem soon, saving many other users from falling in the same trap.
