Facebook users may receive an email with the subject “Facebook Password Reset Confirmation! Customer Support.” It’s bogus. The text reads:
Dear user of facebook, Because of the measures taken to provide safety to our clients, your password has been changed. You can find your new password in attached document. Thanks, Your Facebook.
Notice the obvious lack of personalization and the bad formatting. And, who the heck is “Your Facebook?” This was obvious to me, but I’m savvy. I posted a warning on Facebook and received many thank you messages.
The message comes with a zip attachment.
Those who get duped into opening the attachment will be infected with various nasty trojans and other malware.
Warn your friends and clients.
