"Your Facebook Login is Currently Removed" - A Fake Email with a Virus Attached

The email message below with the subject: "Your Facebook login is currently removed," has a malicious attachment that will infect the recipients' computers if they attempt to open it. The email message is a fake and was not sent by Facebook. It was sent by cyber-criminals, whose aim is to infect the recipients' computers with a malware called a Trojan horse, which will allow them to spy on and steal their victims' personal and financial information. Recipients of the email message are asked to delete it and do not attempt to open the attachment.

Facebook is trying to contact all our members in no time but we have limited email resources. Our company would be appreciative if you will mail the attached program to your peers and family asap.

NOTICE that you will only be able to access the utility by using a Microsoft computer
