The phishing warning is triggered by a broken advertisement link related to the new Facebook Connect service and Facebook is working to correct the problem.

The website is owned by Facebook and is used to serve up parsed data and application-related Ref handles when a user arrives at, so there is no real phishing threat.

Facebook Developer Forums were abuzz this morning with talk about the false phishing warnings with administrators acknowledging that was listed as a phishing site.

While this one was definitely a false alarm, with all the phishing scams targeting Facebook users, you can’t be too careful when logging in on a site your browser says is suspicious.

And that’s the latest news on phishing.
