Facebook fraud infecting hundreds of thousands using the Malaysian plane disappearance story

During recent days, a new Facebook scam is causing hundreds of thousands of infections onto users’ computers worldwide.The hackers posted a fake page claiming to have a video of the Malaysian disappearing airplane, titled “Malaysia Plane MH370 Has Been Spotted Somewhere Near Bermuda Triangle. Shocking Videos Release Today”.

Once the users click on the link they are taken to a website that asks to share the message with others, which users tend to accept, and then once the Close button is clicked, the users are asked to download the “video”, which actually downloads malware and causes the infection of the computer.

The recommendation is not to open the message. If you did, immediately change your access password to all social networks.
