I Guess Theres Someone Pretending To Be You - Virus Message

If you receive this message: "I guess there’s someone pretending to be you, using your contact details!?!Have a look IMG_09960.zip," in your Facebook chat window, message inbox or elsewhere, please do not click the link in it. This is because, the link will download the malicious file "IMG_09960.zip", which is a Zip or a compressed file that contains a virus or Trojan horse that will infect your computer if you open it.

Please continue reading below.

The file “IMG_09960.zip” is not an image, but a Zip or a compressed file, which contains the Windows malicious executable file “IMG_09960.exe”.

Do not open files ending with “.zip” or “.rar”, unless you are expecting these files from someone. Cybercriminals are compressing or adding their viruses to archive files such as Zip (“.zip”)  or WinRAR( “.rar”) to make them undetectable or able to bypass your email provider’s virus scanners.

If you open this malicious file, your computer will get infected with a Trojan horse, which the cybercriminals behind this message will be able to use to access and take control of your computer remotely from anywhere around the world. They may spy on you, use your computer to commit cybercrimes, or steal your personal and financial information.

Now, if you have already opened the malicious file, please do a full scan of your computer with the antivirus software installed on it.
