WordPress Bloggers – Alert !

Wp-Logo

A Phihshing site has been setup that looks similar to wordpress.org and its prime  goal is to steal cookies as well as wordpress bloggers credentials.

Phishing address       :  http://www.wordpresz.org
Wordpress actucal site :  http://www.wordpress.org

The Technique used by Phishers to plant a domain name whose URL looks similar to the victims URL is called as ‘Typosquatting‘, and here too, the phishers used the same technique, so that if any one made a mistake in typing then they will be directed to a malicious site that looks similar to a real site, and when the visitors download something, then they are into trouble because that would be a ‘Backdoor’, where as the hackers can access the your system anonymously and can use it for developing  botnet and use it for several other malicious purposes.

http://www.wordpresz.org is sharing the IP address (209.160.33.108) with a fake online pharmacy http://www.livepills.com.
