New Facebook Virus Scam out in the wild

Facebook has just put up a new post warning users about a new virus/scam making its rounds.  The scam appears to be a Facebook Email, warning of new login security, that requires the user to click a link and subsequently captures their account information through a look-a-like Facebook site.

Here’s the official word from Facebook:

Watch out for two new viruses that are spreading across the web. They involve emails made to look like they are from Facebook telling you to take some action on your account. Remember that we will never send you a new password as an attachment. Stay informed on how to keep your account secure by becoming a fan of the Facebook Security Page.
