Facebook Malware Lure du Jour

Simple, and guaranteed to be downloaded/installed by plenty of unsuspecting Windows and Facebook users:

From: Facebook <noreply@facebook.com>
Subject: F is for fun!

Hi there.

You got a funny picture from your Facebook friends.

To see it, click here .

Please do not reply to this email.

Enjoy it.

The link downloads a file named facebook.gif.exe, which shows about 48% coverage in VirusTotal exams as a backdoor Trojan.

That's not all that "F" is for.
