Apparent "Phishing" Attack Aimed at Facebook!

A Phishing attacked is apparently underway affecting Facebook users.  Since so many of us are participating in the Facebook and Social media phenomena, I thought this was a timely warning!!!  Be careful out there in cyberspace!

DON'T SIGN INTO Fbaction.net

As if the swine flu and the economy weren't enough to worry about, now there are confirmed reports that a phishing attack is underway aimed at Facebook users.  It consists of an e-mail containing text similar to the message below.  Please be aware and don't be lured into signing into a malicious site that will steal your information.  The message body will apparently read something like this (with YOUR FRIEND being replaced by the name of a friend of yours):

YOUR FRIEND sent you a message.

Subject:  Hello

"Visit http://www.facebook.com/l/4253f;http://fbaction.net/"

Do take the time to read and check the URL carefully before you sign into the bogus Facebook site and give away any information.
