Facebook Account Phishing On The Rise

Malware and spyware may be getting more prevalent on the Facebook social network and one of the ways in which it’s distributed is via viruses/spyware delivered via email.

Unless you’re deliberately posting colon cleansing or teeth whitening links on your friends’ FB walls and PMing them, this is what might happen:

facebook wall spam

It’s not as bad as the MySpace wall spamming (circa 2005-06), but it can be pretty annoying, especially since some of these external links may drop malware via on-page code.

Besides links embedded within Facebook, the main source of infection appears to be via email.

I got this email a couple of weeks ago:

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.

Thanks,
The Facebook Team

Aside from the mail originating from “support+ooookwvved@facebookmail.com” with “Received: from 91-66-90-201-dynip.superkabel.de ([91.66.90.201])”, there is a possibility that this phishing scheme originates from Russia/Eastern Europe, or it’s propagated to Germany.

In any case, besides someone gaining access to be able to post wall spam, I’d be concerned about any FB Ads campaign they might run. (Although given FB Ads poor record in approving ads, the phishers might be become headbangers (against the wall..))

So be aware and take care.

And yes, if you post spam on my wall, it qualifies for an automatic approval for unfriending (as the C2M  boys like to say).

    What I sometimes do is try and think of a circumstance, that
    could happen to anyone, to explain the bad driving. Maybe she swerved bc she was trying to talk to her
    dying mom on her phone and she dropped the phone and was
    looking for it. Maybe he cut me off bc his wife is giving birth and hes trying to make it
    there.

    Tankini Swimwear When you read that one of these firms
    “traded for its own account” you might think it means
    they traded these bonds with other institutions, which can be true but it is only part
    of the truth. When brokers and banks deal with each
    other, as for instance when Citi sells $100 million of bonds to iShares for
    their 1 3 Year Treasury Bond Fund (NYSEARCA:SHY) or
    TIPS Bond Fund (NYSEARCA:TIP), the principals are two professional insiders with their finger on the
    pulse of every basis point (1/100 of 1%) change in the market.
    As a result the spreads in these transactions are much tighter..

    the fundamental problem in filmed sci fi that realistic space combat
    would be hideously boring AND impossible to show in a satisfactory
    way. When you can detect a ship from a million miles away, you
    can launch missiles or fire lasers from a million miles
    away too. Like you say, if the enemy is close enough that concepts like “down” become relevant, someone has already screwed up in a big way.Although oddly

    One good thing is that I very rarely sleep on this ear

    Considine claims that it was his co star Gary Oldman who gave him confidence to make the

    The very best feature of a botox cosmetic shot procedure may seem to be the reality that it takes a short time to administer, approximately 10 mins.

    But the short lived duration in imparting of the Botox procedure
    should not be taken as to mean that the therapy is to be taken lightheartedly.
    It is critical that precautions are taken at every phase of the Botox treatment as well as just experienced physicians be
    allowed to provide it.

    The physicians need to be completely versed in all elements that enter into
    typical Botox training. They need to understand the health risks that may build
    up from wrong dose or an incorrect setting of application. There is always the danger of
    an unintended reduced dosage and over dosage.
    For finest results the Botox injection needs to be
    applied in simply the appropriate dose and also at the best part of the face.
    For that reason a comprehensive Botox training is a sine qua non.

    Untrained people giving Botox in hair salons, fitness centers,
    resort areas, home-based workplaces, and also other retail places may end up being cheaper for people yet eventually
    it poses a serious health risk. Inappropriate methods, unsuitable dosages, and also unsanitary problems might result
    from lack of sufficient Botox training. As a matter of fact the FDA has made it clear that botox is a guideline drug that must be carry out by a qualified physician in an appropriate clinical setup.

    Therefore, botox training is very crucial.

    Botox therapies ought to always start with a consultation throughout which the doctor will certainly research the client’s
    frown as well as smile lines and also select an efficient treatment.
    The individual will certainly be asked to fill in a set of questions that asks every
    little thing from the regarded skin type
    to how much time they invested in the sunlight to a complete medical history.
    The location of the skin to be treated with Botox is cleaned
    up and also anesthetic carried out prior to the treatment can begin. Just a Botox-trained doctor can guarantee that all the required precautions are taken at each stage of the treatment.
