Free Breaking Dawn Part 2? Tickets Scam Spreads in Facebook


The latest Facebook scam leverages Breaking Dawn Part 2 and leads to survey pages that steal personal data such as cell phone numbers and email addresses.

Who wants free tickets to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2? To most, specifically to cybercriminals, the real question is, “Who wouldn’t?”

We have encountered several incidents of clickjacking on Facebook, which typically redirect users to a malicious survey that asks for personal information such as email addresses or mobile phone numbers.

This time around, this attack now targets users (and fans) who may be interested to watch the movie, Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2.

Users are advised to always be on the lookout for such threats and to avoid clicking scam links on Facebook. Trend Micro protects product users from this attack via the Smart Protection Network™ by blocking all related URLs.

Facebook and other social networking sites remain viable platforms for several cyber attacks. As such, social media users can protect themselves by checking out our e-book, “Spam, Scams, and Other Social Media Threats.”
