It may be the peak of the Christmas season, but there are those that are taking advantage of the holidays to scam unsuspecting netizens online.

According to the Cyber Security Philippines – Computer Emergency Response Team, hackers are sending links masked as holiday greetings. These links will direct netizens to websites such as:

  • https://wish-you.co
  • https://wish4u.co
  • https://my-msg.co
  • https://look-me.co
  • https://surprise4u.me
  • https://hookgist.com
  • https://see-magic.co
  • https://mera-style.com
  • https://whatsapp-style.co
  • https://see-magic.co
  • https://my-love.co

Once there, the page will ask the user for their personal data. It will then automatically send the same message to the user’s contacts.

So before this even happens, avoid clicking on suspicious links sent by people via social media. Chances are, they have already been hacked.

If this happens to you, it’s time to change your passwords on your social media and bank accounts, reset your browser, update your anti-malware service, and scan your device.
