Another Day, Another Discord Phishing Scam
Ay bro I know we ain't talk in awhile but I thought you might find this interesting? https://discordgg.ga/nitro/nA94n19amD9a4The second example.
Yo, my firend just sent me this referral link for nitro - https://dicordgg.ga/nitro/nA94n19amD9a4 You should be able to get it for free - it worked for me anywayThe idea of the link is to trick people into thinking it is a legit Discord URL, it is not. The URL is trying to look like "discord dot gg", a real Discord URL, however, the URL is really "discord gg dot ga", a fake. If you clicked the link at the time, then you would have been lead to a fake login page, this isn't all that new, as fake login pages have been a thing for sometime. Once you enter your username and password, you will be unable to log into your account, as a bot is now in control of it. The bot will lock you out by changing the password and the E-Mail adress. So, what can you do? There are two small, simple things you can do. The first is set-up a two factor authentication on your Discord account (while you're at it, also do this for your other non-Discord accounts like Twitter, Google, etc). Next, when someone sends you a link, do read the full URL, if it looks off, do not click it. If you do get this type of message sent to you, please report, block, and ignore it. As of publication, the site has been killed, however, it is still important to know the risks and how to stop them, as an event like this can happen again. If you are still unsure, remember this, Discord (or any other company) would never ask you to log in to your account, while you are still logged in to it.
