A Mysterious Facebook Email
After I read this email, I'm confused what the hell happened to my Facebook account. I didn't even change my Facebook password. I check my Facebook and log-in using the same old password. Guess what? I successfully log-in to my Facebook Account and no password changes happened.
And I don't know who sent this spam to my Facebook Account. Then, I open the attached file Facebook_document_Nr9046.zip... when the downloading process began, sure enough, Norton Antivirus detected a virus in the attachment.
Here is the alert message of from Norton Antivirus:
This is a pop-up alert message from Norton Antivirus in my Yahoo Mail, notifying me that the attached file contains virus.
