Facebook users’ cyber security is at risk again as they were warned Wednesday night against a supposed tool that can extract Facebook passwords.
“Once installed, it displays a window that requires users to encode the email address or Facebook ID of their target Facebook account… To appear legitimate, the program even shows a window to indicate that the request is in progress. After 2-5 minutes, it informs users that the desired password has been found,” Security vendor Trend Micro said in a blog post.
But to acquire the supposed password, users must purchase a product key, which costs US$29.99.
“Some Internet users may be lured into downloading these tools, as they promise access to someone’s Facebook password without the their consent. Luckily, instead of the actual password, users who download these hacking tools acquire a different password and ends up paying for a bogus service,” it said.
