Chris was logged in to Facebook today when one of his friends started chatting with him. It was pretty obvious to Chris that his friend had been the victim of an Account Takeover (ATO) and thta he was really chatting with a criminal who was inviting him to visit a Facebook phishing site. Chris gathered up an evidence package and submitted it to IC3.gov with his analysis prior to contacting me. With his permission, I'm sharing what he saw (editing his friend's identity out for her privacy.)
Original URL user sees is of the format:
http://(USER FIRST NAME)-photos.uglyfacebookpeople,commm
URL is intentionally messed up, presumably to avoid detection by Facebook systems.
URL redirects to http://accounts.login.userid.266765.facebooclk.com/lp/fbn/?next=http%3A%2F%2F%2videos%2F%3AJ%4ID%1A
Action file is security.php
Following the action file results in visiting accounts.login.userid.497031.facebooclk.com/blam/
Which directs you to a "Flash Player Update" site that I assume is a virus. http://22.214.171.124/install_flashplayer13x32_mssd_aaa_aih.ex
There are other files that were on the site, but it is down now.
