Warning! Fake Facebook Email With a Bredolab Trojan Virus


I received this email on Thursday, 18 March 2010:

This is a warning to everyone that this email contains a Trojan virus. The Trojan is called "Bredolab". This is not from Facebook."service@facebook.com." Address and sender were spoofed.

(More information on Spoofing) Do not open the attachment. Delete the email.


"Hey flowergirl ,

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."

Who is "flowergirl". I immediately knew this was not genuine. Facebook would never change passwords in this way. No legitimate company would require you to download files. (Have you experienced a similar type of email?)
