Security researchers have reported about two new phishing campaigns aimed at harvesting Google and PayPal credentials. Both spread by e-mail containing links to fake login pages to the respective services. While the fake PayPal login page displays usual phishihng address in the browser’s address bar, the fake Google login page includes whole HTML code of the page in the URI making it less recognizable for the user.

Malwarebytes also reported a malware campaign on Facebook which distributes malware downloader in .jar format by the means of messages. Once opened the file causes not only the malware to be installed on user’s computer but the malicious message is also sent to all his/her friends on Facebook.
