A new virus is spreading via one of the few emails we ALL click on – alerts that you have been ‘tagged’ in a picture on Facebook.
The emails, which look like Facebook’s own alerts, directs users to a page to view the new picture they have appeared in.
People often follow such links to ensure they are looking their best – or at least not looking their worst.
The new spam campaign instead redirects the user to a site which attempts to infect the computer with malicious software – but a few seconds later, is redirected to a real Facebook page.
People could be infected without even being aware the attack had happened.
