每日英語跟讀 Ep.K203: Line Taiwan warns: Do not click on suspicious links
The MyGoPen fact-checking platform says that a counterfeit version of the official Line Web site that recently appeared on the Internet tricks people into downloading “the latest version of Line for Windows.” As well as having identical Web page design to the original, the site has even placed Google ads to make it look more authentic, while seeking to steal Line users’ account passwords and information and lure people into downloading malware files unawares.
Addressing stories circulating online, Line Taiwan on Monday last week issued an official clarification, saying that Line has always payed close attention to network information security issues, and it recently discovered that an unscrupulous operator had created a fake version of the official Line Web site. Line reminded users not to click on dubious Web addresses or enter their personal account passwords on suspicious Web sites.
Line Taiwan added that if users have any other questions, they can communicate them to Line customer service via the problem-reporting function. Additionally, if people come across a suspicious Web address, they can also report it instantly via the reporting function.
Line asks users to follow three fraud-prevention steps, namely “do not share, seek verification, report” to safeguard their rights and interests as well as those of other users. The correct Web address for Line’s official Web site is https://line.me. If “line” is followed by letters other than “me,” it may take you to a fake Web site, so do not click on it.
「Line Taiwan」也表示，若使用者有其他疑問，可以透過問題反應表向Line客服反應。另外，如發現可疑網址，亦可透過檢舉功能即時舉報。「Line Taiwan」請用戶以「不分享、求證確認、檢舉」防詐三步驟保障自身及其他用戶的權益。Line的官方網站網址為https://line.me，如果「line」後面有「me」以外的其他字母，可能會導向假冒的網站，民眾切勿點擊。Source article: https://www.taipeitimes.com/News/lang/archives/2021/08/31/2003763496
