Scam of the Week
The Ultimate Data Breach Database
With a year full of high-profile data breaches, one cybercriminal has created the ultimate database. The cybercriminal claims that the database contains over 3.8 billion records and is attempting to sell the information on the dark web.
Allegedly, the database is made up of scraped phone numbers that were then linked to Facebook profiles, Clubhouse accounts, and other sensitive information. Due to the nature of this data, we expect to see an increase in smishing attacks, hijacked accounts, and other social media scams.
Use the tips below to stay safe from these types of scams:
• Smishing, or text message phishing, is difficult to spot. When you receive a suspicious text message, ask yourself these questions: Were you expecting this message? When did you give the sender your phone number? Did you sign up for text notifications?
• Hijacking a social media account is an easy way for cybercriminals to spread disinformation or scam several people at once. Don’t trust everything you see on social media, and be sure to report any suspicious activity.
• For a high level of security, keep your social media accounts private. Only accept friend requests or follow requests from people that you know and trust.
Stop, Look, and Think. Don't be fooled.
