After tagging images on Facebook if you get emails like Facebook’s own messages in your personal email accounts don’t reply or follow the sender’s instruction, for Facebook doesn’t send the email, it is a virus.
“Be wary of emails claiming to be from Facebook, and saying that you have been tagged in a photograph,” Graham Cluley of the British internet security firm Sophos told The Telegraph.
“SophosLabs has intercepted a spammed-out email campaign, designed to infect recipients’ computers with malware. If you click on the link in the email, you are not taken immediately to the real Facebook website,” Cluley continued.
However, Facebook users can easily identify the virus when they receive the email as the word Facebook has been misspelled as ‘Faceboook’ there.
“Even if you didn’t notice that ”Faceboook” was spelt incorrectly, you could have seen by hovering your mouse over the link that it wasn’t going to take you directly to the genuine Facebook website,” Cluley added.
