IT Security Tip #8: Bookmark the LEGITIMATE Websites You Frequently Visit

Here’s a sneaky trick used by many hackers: they purchase and set up a fraudulent website that is a close misspelling of a legitimate one.

Example: www.faceboook.com (one extra accidental “o”) instead of www.facebook.com, all you have to do is accidentally fat-finger ONE letter in the URL and up pops a very legitimate-looking fake copy of the site you were trying to get to – and the login and links are full of key-logger malware and virus landmines waiting for you to click on them. This is particularly important for any social networks you belong to.
