Fake Facebook Suspended Account emails are leading to Trojans and Ransomware.

There are some fake emails circulating at the moment that attempt to trick you into believing that your Facebook Account has been suspended, due to a breach in Facebook's "Terms & Policies".

They appear to come from a legitimate Facebook email address, but it is a trick to get you to click on a link that leads to a TermsPolicies.pdf.exe file hosted on what seems to be a compromised third party website (assetdigitalmarketing [dot] com).

The file seems to be a generic Trojan downloader, and is a crypto-ransomware variant. Malwarebytes detects it as Trojan.ZBAgent.NS - the signature they use for CTB Locker/Critroni ransomware.

Similar to our last Post, if you've lost your Windows 8.1 disk, or it's been damaged, this Microsoft website has a tool for creating new media.

I came across a removal tool that I hadn’t heard of before called GMER, and I gave it a shot.

To my surprise it was very simple and effective.

If you have ever lost your Windows 7 Disk or Recovery Media, or damaged it so that it's unusable, then this is a handy website to know about.

You can download an ISO file so you can burn a replacement, or create a bootable USB Drive.

Microsoft are encouraging people to report bogus phone calls claiming they are Microsoft so that they can work with Law Enforcement Agencies to catch these guys.

There is a link on this website to report Tech Support Scams.
