Facebook Users: Ongoing Scam!

On Wednesday, Reuters reported that a new password stealing virus is working its way through the Internet targetting Facebook users.

Hackers flooded the ‘net with spam messages that are targetting Facebook’s estimated 400 million users in an attempt to steal your personal information.

The email message tells its recipients that the passwords on their Facebook account have been reset, urging them to open an attachment to obtain new login details. Consider IT warns all readers NEVER to open unknown attachments!

A Facebook spokesman said the company could not comment on the specific case, but pointed to a status update the company posted on its website earlier on Wednesday. This update warned users about the illicit email and advises users to delete it immediately.

The email’s subject line says “Facebook password reset confirmation customer support,” according to Dave Marcus from McAfee.
