    There is an email message going around that states the following;

    Subject: Facebook Password Reset Confirmation! Support Message.
    Facebook Manager [customer@facebook.com]
    To: myaddress.com <--- never used this address to signup in the firstplace.

    Comes with an attached zip file. Scanned with Malwarebyte and it came up clean. But it is an exe file not a document file at all.

    Do not open!!!!!!!!!

    Wow. It's probably that cunt that hacked thousands of accounts.

    I can see that even people with a decent amount of computer knowledge could fall for this.

    Sorry I disagree with that, Seriously no company is EVER going to send your password in an exe format. Anyone with a ounce of computer knowledge should know better.
