Beware Of Facebook Scam

A new scam is looking for your Facebook password

An email is doing the rounds trying to get your Facebook password, so cybercrims can gain access to your personal information.

The message of the email claims to arrive from “The Facebook Team”, but in fact, the spam is spoofed and not from the team at all:

“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,
The Facebook Team”

So why are they sending it out? Koobface, Bredolab, and Zbot-distributing cybercrime groups all spoof Facebook and other highly popular social networking sites to deliver their malware to victim systems, according to security software specialists PC Tools.
Like banking scams, Facebook will not ask for your password, nor will they change it remotely. So if you do get this email, delete is as soon as possible.
