Facebook users may be able to relax a little - the Facebook/malware messages that we reported yesterday are starting to morph to other social networking sites. Starting around 10AM Pacific time today, Cloudmark started to see the subject of those messages change to "Myspace Password Reset Confirmation". Aside from changing "Facebook" to "Myspace" throughout the messages, they're the same thing, and they still carry a .zip file that will try to add your computer to the Bredolab botnet. As with Facebook, Myspace is a victim here, as well, and is not responsible the messages. It's probable that we'll see this morph again in the next few days, so users should be especially wary of messages purporting to be from the social networks. Cloudmark's systems have already generated fingerprints for these messages, and Cloudmark customers are being protected from this mutation.
