Computer hackers are targeting Facebook users with an email scam that attempts to steal their passwords, Web security firm McAfee said Wednesday.

McAfee said some users of the world’s most popular social networking site were receiving emails that appeared to be from Facebook informing them their Facebook password had been reset and to click on an attachment to retrieve it.

The security firm said the attachment is actually a “password stealer” that is installed when a user clicks on it and can potentially access any username and password combination on that computer, not Facebook-related information.
“This threat is potentially very dangerous considering that there are over 350 million Facebook users who could fall for this scam,” McAfee said in a statement.
The subject line of the scam email reads: “Facebook Password Reset Confirmation! Customer Support.”
McAfee advised anyone receiving the password-reset message to delete it and to not open the attachment.
Because of its huge membership, Facebook is a frequent target of computer hackers seeking to steal passwords.
In its 2010 Threat Predictions report released in December, McAfee said email “was increasing in popularity as the preferred method for targeting attacks against individual users, corporations and government institutions.”

    DANGEROUS MATCH.COM SCAM.

    On June 9th I got hacked simultaneously on my Gmail my outlook accounts, of course by the same person. I recognized the email as spam and disregarded the content ( FYI the heading was “Sad and Horror!!” and the sender claimed to have been the victim of a mugging in Barcelona). 

    What scares me is this: 

    The only way those 2 accounts could possibly be linked is via Match.com, which I had joined the day before via   a sales rep on the phone.  My home phone, the name on my credit card and the account my Match email is forwarded to were immediately released by Match. 

    The next day an email from a Match username (minus the “@match.com” address) was sent to my private gmail account with ccs to “customer” and a list of recipients but no text.  Match had generated it along with the customer satisfaction survey, revealing the widely-held belief that Match uses “fake members” to encourage participation of real ones.  It never appeared in my real Match.com site inbox.

    I am particularly enraged that my unique outlook account, which has a different handle, was immediately located, associated and spammed. This is identity theft by a paid dating site.  My goal is to completely expose Match.com.  Please join me!
