Facebook Suffers 'Password Reset' Scam

Hackers have flooded the Internet with spam that targets Facebook's users in an effort to steal banking passwords and gather other sensitive information.

McAfee said that the 'virus' reached as high as No. 6 on our Global Virus Map?s Top 10, which tracks consumer detections worldwide. It even accounts for as much as 10 percent of the infected email that the company's managed email SaaS unit is seeing.
