What is typosquatting...?

Typosquatting is where a hacker designs a webpage that looks correct, but is in total control of the hacker. According to Palo Alto’s latest report hackers like to mimic pages from big companies such as PayPal, Apple, Royal Bank of Canada, LinkedIn, Google, Apple’s iCloud, Bank of America, Dropbox, Amazon, and Instagram.

Palo Alto’s Unit 42 spotted a page from Wells Fargo that showed secure-wellsfargo[.]org —a bogus site that looks real but was created to trick you into giving up your username and passwords and perhaps even your ATM PIN.
