Reddit scam tries to steal your password – here’s how to avoid it.
READ-IT This scary Reddit scam tries to steal your password – here’s how to avoid it.
A security expert has exposed a dangerous ploy to nick the login credentials of Reddit users, so we reveal how to avoid this “pitch-perfect” scam
The blunder was picked up by web security expert Alec Muffet, who called the scam website a “pitch-perfect” reproduction.
The good news is that it’s easy to stay safe: just double-check the web address you enter before typing in any login details.
But if the website is fake then it doesn’t matter if your data is encrypted, because the end destination is a hacker’s computer anyway.
It’s a serious blunder by Reddit, because the company should’ve bought up the domain years ago to protect users from this kind of scam.
