Hopefully you did NOT get HACKED!!! please never open a email with a attachment especially if it has (.exe or .zip) extension from a bank, major social site, big internet websites such as paypal, twitter facebook… ASSUME They’re ALL spam… much better way to approach your emails from them… that way you don’t get hacked, even if the email looks official from any of these big companies and or other institution they just don’t handle email communication this way!

Facebook is warning its users on an ongoing BredoLab malware serving campaign using the well known “Facebook Password Reset Confirmation Customer Support” social engineering theme.

More details on the campaign:

Subject: Facebook Password Reset Confirmation Customer Support
Message: “Dear user of Facebook,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, Your Facebook.”

Asked to comment on the inner workings of the campaign, TrendMicro’s Ivan Macalintal commented that based on the samples he analyzed, the same campaign was also seen in October, 2009.
