New Facebook Scam Steals Passwords

    There is a new email scam going around that you’ll want to be aware of which tries to steal your passwords.  The email, presenting itself as being from the Facebook Support Team, informs recipients that due to security reasons their password has been reset.  Conveniently, the email continues, this new password has been attached for you in a zip file.  As you might guess, this zip file contains malicious code designed to steal your passwords.

imageThis email can safely be deleted.  This is, however, a great time to remind everyone that legitimate websites, including your bank websites, should never send your passwords to you in any format unless you’ve requested them to do so.  Random emails such as these should always be deleted.  If you have further concerns you should contact the customer care center of the service provider.
