These virus guys are busy, so soon after the DHL and Mail Server viruses, we now have a Facebook one. It will be interesting to see if people are getting wise to these forms of delivery, or whether the threat of losing access to Facebook will panic people into opening the attachment.

Again it looks like they are in the wild for a day or so before the virus software gets updated.

As usual here is the transcript

From: “The Facebook Team”
To: validemail@yoursite.co.nz
Subject: Facebook Password Reset Confirmation.

Hey validemail ,

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

As always if you get anything suspicious, look at the Email Scams and Viruses category to see if it is there.

If not, let me know

Let the fun begin!
