Warning from Cyber Security Philippines-CERT

What are these malicious sites all about?

It was elaborated by the said cybersecurity team that these attacks are usually done in this process. First, victims will receive greetings from messaging apps that redirect to other sites. After that, victims will be redirected again and will be blasted by various greetings.

The next step is prompting the victims to enter their data while malicious file runs in the background. The last step is the access of malicious script to the victim’s credentials while sending the message to other contacts.

Here are the malicious website links that the Cyber Security Philippines-CERT identified: 

  • wish-you.co
  • wish4u.co
  • my-msg.co
  • look-me.co
  • surprise4u.me
  • hookupgist.com
  • see-magic.co
  • mera-style.co
  • whatsapp-style.co
  • my-love.co

Cyber Security Philippines-CERT recommends to do the following actions if you click any of the malicious sites: Change passwords for your banking and social media accounts, reset your browsers, and update your anti-malware and scan.
