Facebook Malware

11.07.09 | Comment?

Got this e-mail this morning and it was too delicious not to share.

Dear Facebook user,

Due to Facebook policy changes, all Facebook users must submit a new, updated account agreement, regardless of their original account start date.
Accounts that do not submit the updated account agreement by the deadline will have restricted.

Please unzip the attached file and run “agreement.exe” by double-clicking it.

The Facebook Team

The mail appears to come from Facebook <update+ogqlkohachj@facebookmail.com>. Facebookbmail.com? really? And you want me to execute an EXE file?

I thought we were past this, guys. We live in an age of drive-by malware infections from legitimate websites and botnets 10,000+ strong. And you’re sending executables in zip files?
