Beware of a fake email that claims to be from Facebook and asks you to open an attachment to receive a new
password. This email is potentially harmful. Delete it from your inbox. The attachment contains a password stealer that targets Windows computers and which can potentially access any username and password combination used on the computer, not just the login credentials for Facebook.
According to McAfee Labs this is the sixth most prevalent piece of malware targeting consumers.
Here’s how a phony email may look:
Here are few clues that this is a phishing scam.
- Facebook doesn’t send e-mails like this. It may send an e-mail with a link where the user can reset the password, but not an e-mail with an attachment.
- The e-mail has poor grammar and awkward phrases. For instance, Facebook is not capitalized in the salutation.

hey brilliant little journal you got right here 🙂 I operate the same web theme on my own yet unfortunately for whatever weird reasons it seems to reload at a higher speed on this web site eventhough this site consists of a whole lot more content. Have you been operating any plug ins or widgets that speed it up? Do you think you could quite possibly share the titles so that I would be able to use these on my personal site so twilight new moon supporters could watch twilight new moon online trailers and films more easily I’d be ever so grateful – cheers in advance 🙂
