Эксперты Центра цифровой экспертизы Роскачества раскрыли фишинговую схему для похищения данных пользователей «ВКонтакте», сообщается на официальном сайте организации.
Атака происходит следующим образом: пользователь сети получает письмо, в котором предлагается отменить создание и передачу архива всех данных со страницы во «ВКонтакте» на другой адрес электронной почты. Если открыть ссылку и, следуя рекомендациям мошенников, сменить пароль, то все содержимое профиля попадет в руки хакеров.
Центр безопасности «ВКонтакте» подчеркивает, что хотя соцсеть действительно предлагает возможность создания архива данных, включая диалоги, скачать такой архив нельзя без подтверждения с привязанного к аккаунту устройства, а уникальную ссылку для скачивания невозможно открыть с посторонней страницы.
Чтобы избежать мошенничества, пользователям соцсети рекомендовали не переходить по ссылкам из сообщений, вбивать адрес соцсети в браузере только вручную, в любых неясных ситуациях менять пароль от своей страницы и пользоваться двухфакторной идентификацией.

She's been keeping her followers entertained with a plethora of scantily clad social media snaps.
And Rebecca Gormley was at it again on Friday as she shared a sizzling throwback bikini snap to Instagram from a previous holiday to Marbella.
The Love Island star, 22, put on a sensational display as she slipped into a blue and zebra print cut-out two-piece.
Rebecca was sure to showcase her taut midriff and slender pins as she stretched out while sitting on a swing at the beach.
The racy cut-out detail of the strapless bikini top gave a glimpse of her ample cleavage, with Rebecca accessorising her beach look with a simple silver necklace and black sunglasses atop her head.
The reality star looked in her element as she seductively posed for the snap while her brunette tresses cascaded over her shoulder.
Rebecca also shared a current snap during lockdown in the UK, with the star clearly pining for sunnier climes.
Currently in a romance with fellow Love Islander Biggs Chris, she recently shared a bikini throwback where she sported braids and discussed the backlash she received over the hairstyle.
Rebecca shared the photo with the caption: 'I can't remember the last time I worked out properly, I need to get back to it. I was between a size eight and a ten, depending on the dress.'
The star was then asked by a fan 'why did you think it was okay to wear braids?'
She responded: 'This questions always comes up. I've always worn braids, even when I was younger' before showing a childhood throwback snap of her with the style.
In September, Rebecca defended herself after she was criticised for styling her hair in braids, which some of her followers claimed was 'black fishing'.
She proudly showcased her new hairstyle in a picture with her boyfriend Biggs Chris, however she was quickly accused of cultural appropriation.
Fans were left unimpressed that she was sporting a hairstyle typically worn by black women, and took to the comments section to express their disapproval.
Blackfishing is a term used when someone adopts makeup or hair stylings to appear like they have black heritage.
One person wrote underneath a picture of her sporting the braids: 'Hunny cultural appropriation looks so good on you must be why you continue to do it #pleasestop.'
While another said: 'Girl you can't wear that hairstyle...'
Another said: 'I'd rethink the hair.'
However some of her followers supported her decision, with one writing: 'I don't understand the hate. If she appreciates the beauty of your culture and supports it, why are y'all so mad?'
After noticing the comments and receiving some private messages about her style choice, Rebecca took to her Stories to defend the choice.
She said: 'So I've been going through my requests and I've got loads of awful messages which I don't think is fair at all.
'I've had messages saying I'm being disrespectful to people's culture because of my hair but I wear braids all the time, just because I've got a few more braids downs meant I'm being disrespectful.'
'I don't want to hurt anyone I'm just being myself, I'm doing me. I'm literally just doing me. I had to get someone else to do it, because I can't do it as good as this. Have you seen it they're unreal.
'Also thank you to everyone who has been sending me lovely messages and being so kind, I really appreciate it and I love you all.'
