>>>>> A new variant of the Gmail PHISHING mail claiming to be from 'The Gmail Team'!!
This version asks recipients to mail Facebook!!


I wonder, are there any technology available to find out if there is a virus in an attachment stored on a mail server before it is fetched?! Probably one can mark some mails as 'Likely Harmful' based on Subject Line, or File Size Details.

Your comments are welcome.

Subject: Message left on server: "Facebook Password Reset Confirmation! Support Message."



The message "Facebook Password Reset Confirmation! Support Message." from Facebook Support (xxxxxloginxxxxxx@xxxxxfacebook.com) contained a virus or a suspicious attachment. It was therefore not fetched from your account xxxxinfoxxxxx@xxxxxxxxpo.com and has been left on the server.

If you wish to write to Facebook, just hit reply and send Facebook a message.


Thanks,

The Gmail Team
