Please read the following article that details the Facebook attack and just how hackers are using these accounts.  There are two reasons to pay particular attention.  1 – used to spam those you know or you receive spam from those you know that were hacked, 2 – installation of malware to capture screens and key strokes giving hackers access to your other accounts (i.e. bank, financial, or other personal web accts).

I can’t stress the importance of protecting yourself.  It may sound like I am yelling fire, but when you have go through the process of trying to clear your good name due to identity theft you will understand.
