A brand new Ducktail Phishing scam is now operative. The latest version of Ducktail Malware is being used to steal user data and targets Facebook account. The malware that originally emerged in July and specifically aimed at Facebook accounts has now become a greater cause of danger.

The latest version of Ducktail can access all available Facebook data on an infected computer system.

The latest version, on the other hand, is installed on file sharing networks that host games, adult videos, among other things!
