Phishers take aim at Facebook page owners

Phishers are looking to trick owners of Facebook pages with fake notices from the social network (i.e., Meta, the company behind Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp), in an attempt to get them to part with sensitive information. Such a link makes it less likely that email security solutions will flag the email as potentially malicious, and can also give a false sense of security to the potential targets, as the email ostensibly came from Facebook and contains a link to a page hosted on Facebook. The method they are using to harvest information is quite clever: they create a lead generation form via the Meta Ads Manager and include the link to it in the phishing email.
