Here’s a sneaky trick used by many hackers: they purchase and set up a fraudulent web site that is a close misspelling of a legitimate one. Example: www.faceboook.com instead of www.facebokk.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.
