Contents in order to inform the user to update the account with the convenience and security reasons while visiting the site.
If the update button is clicked the user will be delivered to the web log was falsified. Yet this is not a web log Facebook’s original, but to accommodate victims username and password.
This web log has a fake address different, for example http://www.facebook.com.xxxxx.eu/globaldirectory/LoginFacebook.php?ref=1584270691543478059651590405901802254672004589860384285&email=xxxxxxx @ xxxx.com. Where xxxxx is a random character.
If a cursory note, fake web log is similar to the original web log Faceebok. But if tracked more closely so there are some notable differences.
At the time of filling the user name and password, it will open a new page that contains a link to download the tool update your account with the name [updatetool.exe] who actually is a virus / trojan that will infect your computer.
