Meta removed over 40 Facebook & Instagram accounts of CyberRoot Risk Advisory for phising

For phishing, Meta deleted more than 40 accounts from Facebook and Instagram that belonged to the Indian business CyberRoot Risk Advisory.
According to Meta’s Threat Report on the Surveillance-for-Hire Industry for 2022, “Instead of directly sharing malware on our apps, this group’s activity manifested primarily in social engineering and phishing, often intended to trick people into giving up their credentials to various online accounts across the internet (e.g., email).” CyberRoot Risk Advisory was the subject of the most recent Meta research on the commercial surveillance market. CyberRoot Risk Advisory targeted litigants, including business executives, attorneys, activists, and journalists. The Indian corporation created phoney profiles using phoney accounts in an effort to win over people all over the world.
