Rogue Antivirus 'Security Tool' targets Facebook users

Facebook users are currently being spammed with a bogus email asking them to review their agreement (by downloading an attached file)

We really hope that if you've visited our site, you won't get caught out by what is clearly a fake email.

The email reads as follows:

"Dear Facebook User,

Due to Facebook policy changes, all Facebook users must submit a new, udpated 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"

Firstly anything addressed to Facebook User will be bogus.

Secondly, we really hope you'd be suspicious after being asked to double click an exe file

Thirdly, the use of language within the message is suspect.

If you unzip the file, you'll become the proud owner of a rogue malware anti virus called Security Tool.

Please do not respond to this message if you get it, and pass this post on to all your friends and family.

Please, always be suspicious of such emails.

Safe surfing.......
