(Newser) – An email that appears to be from Facebook telling users that their passwords have been reset is a dangerous scam. The email contains an attachment that will trigger password-stealing malware if clicked on, Reuters reports. The email has likely been sent to tens of millions of Facebook users and recipients should delete it immediately, urges anti-virus software maker McAfee.
