Facebook Creates Public Email Address to Report Phishing
« on: August 09, 2012, 03:28:41 pm »
Facebook, being the online monolith that it is, is a frequent target for hackers, phishers and all sorts of online scammers. So it is that finally, perhaps belatedly, the site has created a public email address for its users to report phishing: phish@fb.com. Took you long enough, Zuckerberg! :)

A note posted on the Facebook Security page explains:

“By providing Facebook with reports, we can investigate and request for browser blacklisting and site takedowns where appropriate. We will then work with our eCrime team to ensure we hold bad actors accountable. Additionally, in some cases, we’ll be able to identify victims, and secure their accounts.”
