Hi all . It's a Facebook related warning . If you get false mail from third party related to you're facebook account just ignore it. The mail looks like --
Hi [email address]
We are sending you this email to inform you that we have received an account cancellation request from you. Please follow the link below to confirm or cancel this request
The Facebook Team

click hereGuys Careful specially Kids . Stay Safe .The social engineering being used by the tricksters behind this malware attack is pretty cunning. They know that people value their Facebook accounts highly, and many would be upset to lose access to them and the digital connections they have built up with friends and family.
The hope of the cybercriminals is that victims will blindly agree to whatever the computer tells them to do, in order to "fix" the account cancellation request.
The malware attempts to infect your Windows computer
If you do allow the applet to run, you will see a message telling you that Adobe Flash must be updated.
Of course, the code that is downloaded is not really Adobe Flash at all. Instead, the program drops additional files into your /WIN32 folder, which have the intention of allowing remote hackers to spy on your activities and take control of your computer.

I don't need to know everything, I just need to know where to find it, when I need it.
oh no another FB warning, although it is really popular with many i have to say thank you to Indra for the news and helping to keep unwary users in the loop... i can see quite a few people getting caught out with this, but not one of Raymond's members of course..
Thanks for the info Indranil. I don't see myself falling for this kind of thing, but I suppose some people will.
In loving memory of my Grandpa John and Great Uncle Barry.
@Jay @BigGuy good to know that .
Facebook shareholders should be held responsible for this and people should be allowed to take out lawsuits for damages
BTW I'm glad to see share prices falling how anyone fell for this after already rich b*stards invested before anyone else got the chance it was so obvious
“People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do”
Your dad is right BigGuy a lot of investors were scammed by this and are now complaining but that is the risk you take in the stock market plus Zuckerberg doesn't look like someone to be trusted one bit.
That reminds me of a quote I heard in some movie, or TV show, but I can't remeber which one. It went like this, "I'm not in business to be loved, but I am in business."plus Zuckerberg doesn't look like someone to be trusted one bit.
I know several people that will probably jump head first into this scam. What to do ? What to do?
Linux Distro at the moment Mageia 2 / Firefox 10.0.6 ESR
I keep on receiveing this kind of scam mail notice since last year in my different Hotmail A/Cs.
I never clicked on these attached links as I had never used these Hotmail to open any FB A/C.
