msbitsoftware.com + veramigos.com + Conduit = Facebook Phish!

Jonathan sent me an e-mail earlier, refering a domain involved in phishing. This particular one however, contains several interesting aspects.

Most notably, it not only asks for your Facebook credentials, it also leads to what claims to be a legit software developer, and this "legit" developer, is offering a Conduit toolbar, claiming it to be a "Facebook toolbar". msbitsoftware.com is an Israel based firm, and had it not been for this, I'd have likely considered them legit.

Anyway, getting back to it, the first page you see, is veramigos.com, shown top left. This is the page that asks for your Facebook credentials. The "Free Download" for the Facebook toolbar, leads through Google/DoubleClick adverts;

M.S.Bit Ltd. Official response:

M.S.Bit Ltd. is a legit software development company, located and registered legally in Israel, http://www.msbitsoftware.com and in no way, directly and indirectly, has something to do with phishing of any kind.
The ad in issue, was indeed advertised under the veramigos.com domain, but seems to be mistakenly merged with internal veramigos.com advertising, which requires personal details in Spanish (as shown in the screen shot).
M.S.Bit Ltd. has developed a legit toolbar for all Facebook fans, based on world leader toolbar framework provider, Conduit Ltd.
The toolbar is totally legit and registered as a valid Facebook application: Facebook Fans Toolbar (All-In-One Toolbar).
Other then Facebook credentials, which are obligatory for any interaction with Facebook API (and are only stored locally on the client machine, as any other browser cookie), the toolbar does not require any personal information.
In addition, in order to avoid any misunderstandings, we have decided to permanently remove all advertizing material from veramigos.com domain.

Please feel free to contact us at any time for further information regarding Facebook Fans Toolbar: Email – info@msbitsoftware.com, Phone – 972 9 7486785
