Password-stealing virus targets Facebook

Hackers have flooded the Internet with virus-tainted spam that targets Facebook's estimated 400 million users in an effort to steal banking passwords and other sensitive information. According to anti-virus software maker McAfee, the emails tell recipients the passwords on their Facebook accounts have been reset, urging them to click on an attachment to obtain new login credentials. If the attachment is opened, it downloads several types of malicious software, including a program that steals passwords. Hackers have long targeted Facebook users, sending them tainted messages via the social networking company's internal email system.
