The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is warning the general public of the risks behind recently registered FBI-related domains that spoof some of the federal law enforcement agency's official websites.
The warning comes in the form of a public service announcement issued through the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) earlier today.
"The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is issuing this announcement to help the public recognize and avoid spoofed FBI-related Internet domains," the IC3 PSA reads.
"The FBI observed unattributed cyber actors registering numerous domains spoofing legitimate FBI websites, indicating the potential for future operational activity."
