(CNN)Facebook Hackers Phishing and Taking Over Facebook Accounts
Today i realized that the mails i get in my Facebook account with the title “Look at This” which holds a simple link and is all time difference is not a one time thing .
Mostly the links point too a site with Facebook site look and login window, don’t follow the link and don’t enter any information there or your Facebook account could get rapped .
There could run some ActiveX malware too if your computer is not on a save status with the newest antivirus and protection with the right settings what is not easy for most people.
The FB mail comes mostly from one of your friend evener than dont open as it could spread the same massage over your account.
Still now the urls are mostly European like ****.bl and even *****.at Austrian ones.
It looks that it spreads very fast
