Fake Facebook Alerts Distribute ZeuS Trojan
Security researchers from Trend Micro warn of spam emails posing as security alerts from Facebook, which have a version of the ZeuS banking trojan attached.
The infected emails purport to come from “Secure Facebook” and have a subject of “To Facebook user. (#FIRST_DESCR).” The last part is probably the result of a poorly configured spam template.
The contained message claims the recipient’s IP address was used to log onto Facebook numerous times and send spam.
It instructs users to read detailed statistics about their Facebook connections which are allegedly attached to the email, along with a firewall program developed by Facebook.
Called “FB IPsecure,” the application claims to be able to block untrusted connections and prevent spam from being sent from the user’s IP.
