Beware of the Facebook Password Reset Confirmation Malware

These days lots of malware have been found to target the brand name of Facebook and are fooling the users. The malwares namely Bredolab, Zbot and Adware are making the users to install banking password stealing malware and adware on their systems.

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. The mail looks like as follows:

“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”

The email contains an attachment along which is in fact the malware like

Facebook_Password_e9081.zip
FACEBOOK_PASSWORD_52132.ZIP
Facebook_Password_6dd19.zip
Facebook_Password_4cf91.zip
FACEBOOK_PASSWORD_50573-1.ZIP
Facebook_Password_c92dd.zip
FACEBOOK_PASSWORD_7A343.zip

So if you get to read this in your inbox then you know what to do. Just believe the fact that Facebook never sends any email to its users, so if you happen to receive one, just delete it without opening the attachment.
