FBI Warns of Dangers in ‘Safe’ Websites

Dark Reading cybersecurity news website

FBI Warns of Dangers in ‘Safe’ Websites | #TpromoCom #FBI #CyberSecurity #Cyber | Criminals are using TLS certificates to convince users that fraudulent sites are worthy of their trust.

The FBI has issued a public service announcement defining the problem and urging individuals to go beyond simply trusting any “https” URL.

Browser publishers and website owners have waged successful campaigns to convince consumers to look for lock icons and the “https:” prefix as indicators that a website is encrypted and, therefore, secure. The problem, according to the FBI and security experts, is that many individuals incorrectly assume that an encrypted site is secure from every sort of security issue.
