WARNING: Emails Claiming to Contain Facebook Photos Actually Contain Malware

WARNING: There has been a malware warning update from Sophos’ Naked Security, that follows the path of using photos as bait, they are coming out this time in the form of email¬†attachments, made to look like they are coming from Facebook and claiming to contain photos that the users were added in, but they are actually a malicious Trojan Horse.

According to Naked Secruity, the emails contain the subject line, “Your friend added a new photo with you to the album,” and has a body as follows:

Greetings,

One of Your Friends added a new photo with you to the album.

You are receiving this email because you’ve been listed as a close friend.

[View photo with you in the attachement]

The attached file, rather than photos, catches the unsuspecting users of the social network with a Toj/Agent-XNN form of malware according to Naked Security.

See the image below as an example of what the email might look like.
