    Password Stealing Virus Targets Facebook

    New password-stealing virus targets Facebook - Yahoo! News

    BOSTON (Reuters) – Hackers have flooded the Internet with virus-tainted spam that targets Facebook's estimated 400 million users in an effort to steal banking passwords and gather other sensitive information.
    The emails tell recipients that the passwords on their Facebook accounts have been reset, urging them to click on an attachment to obtain new login credentials, according to anti-virus software maker McAfee Inc.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.

    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Re: Password Stealing Virus Targets Facebook

    The best thing you can ever do to protect your privacy online is to never click a live link, even if it appears to be coming from a reputable source such as Facebook, Twitter, e-Bay, PayPal, etc.

    The only exception to the rule would be in the instance of account activation where you must either follow the link or copy/paste the address in your browsers url bar.

    If you need to do anything to your account, you can always login to your account on said site and change your details right there. This is a case of being big does not always mean being perfectly secure.
