Cybercriminals impersonate Privnote.com to steal bitcoins

In what can be described as the case of both cybersquatting and phishing, threat actors have reportedly created a site that imitates the legitimate secure note sharing service privnote.com to steal bitcoins.

The creators of privnote.com, a legitimate site that offers a self-destructive pastes service, were concerned that someone had created a fake version of their website to trick users into using it.

“Earlier this year, KrebsOnSecurity heard from the owners of Privnote.com, who complained that someone had set up a fake clone of their site that was fooling quite a few regular users of the service,” investigative security reporter Brian Krebs reported.
