Beware of virus on Facebook account, save your data

Buzz this
Net surfers need to be wary of a mail that claims to come from the `Facebook team' but contains malware that can control your computer. According to a security company, it has affected 90,000 computers in two days. This email looks innocent but it is far from that. It displays an email id that purportedly looks like the service department of Facebook and says that your password has been changed. To get a new one, you have to click on an attachment. Once clicked, the malware called `bredolab' can control your computer. Symantec tells you how to protect your computer. Remember on basic fact though, unless you have asked for a password, there is no way you will get one. Also, do protect your computer with up-to-date security software.
