Darn Scammers!

Just incase you missed the post on the Oh So Pinteresting Facebook page, I came across an article from Help Net Security about a fake Pinterest tool. It installs malware that collects user names and passwords from the sites you visit.

The fake tool is linked to from fake pins within Pinterest. A pop-up appears when you click through the pin and the page opens. It’s easy to see why people would fall for it since they were just on Pinterest. NEVER install anything to your computer unless you’re sure it’s coming from a trusted source.

Official Pinterest buttons and widgets can be found at Tools from other developers are available but before installing them, do some research to make sure that they’re reputable.
