Nowadays, almost every internet user uses Facebook. With the growing popularity of Facebook, the number of malicious attacks on Facebook and its users are increasing. Recently, some of the users complained that they received Facebook password reset confirmation emails.
The email claims that the Facebook password has been resetted and that a new password can be found in an attached document. When the user clicks and downloads the attachment, the computer is attacked by a Trojan. Both McAfee and Sophos have put out warnings about the scam. Well, here’s what the email looks like:
Facebook Password Reset Confirmation! Customer Support
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.
The Facebook Team.
One thing that we must keep in mind is that Facebook will never reset the user password without consent which makes it clear that the above email is a scam. Moreover, no name is mentioned in the email. So, next time you receive any such email, make sure you don’t believe in it and click on the atachment.
