Facebook Scam: A terrifying ACCIDENT DISNEYLAND PARIS
Beware of a Facebook scam that claims to show a video of “a terrifying accident” at Disneyland Paris titled “A terrifying ACCIDENT DISNEYLAND PARIS.” This video does not exist and is used to bait users into clicking malicious links that spread malware and perform Facebook manual share web attacks.
You may have noticed an article on your Facebook news feed titled “UN ACCIDENT TERRIFIANT A DISNEYLAND PARIS !!!” or “A terrifying ACCIDENT DISNEYLAND PARIS !!!.” These Facebook posts are designed to trick users into clicking malicious links that direct them to websites that will automatically perform web attacks, including a Facebook manual share web attack that takes control of a Facebook user’s account.
Once a Facebook account is hijacked, scam artists can use the account to spam messages and Facebook posts on the user’s behalf. They will also have access to personal information, as well as public Facebook account information.
This Disneyland Paris scam may use webpages that appear similar to Facebook that claim to contain a banned video. The ‘video’ may contain content that says something similar to “Share to view.”
Facebook user’s may also be directed to survey websites used to collect manually submitted user information.
There is no “banned video” of this event and the fabricated story is entirely false. Furthermore, this Facebook scam utilizes messages in different languages.
