MANILA, Philippines – The Cyber Security Philippines-CERT warns Filipinos against opening suspicious greeting notifications on Facebook messenger this holiday.

According to cyber security experts, these messages usually direct users to malicious websites while accessing the users’ personal data.

Experts say it is better to confirm first with your friends, family or relatives if they indeed sent a message before opening it.

In the event of opening such malicious message, experts recommend to immediately change the passwords of your banking and social media accounts.
