WARNING: Trojan hiding as a news story about FBI, Facebook

If you have received an email which says:

Subject: FBI wants instant access to Facebook

FBI wants instant access to Facebook http://FedNewsWorld.com/

DO NOT go to that web site (especially if you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer!),
DO NOT download the file, which is on that page (fbi_facebook.exe),
DO NOT run the file, which contains a Trojan.

This trojan: Trojan.Peacomm

I don’t know if the new file has the same behavior as described here.

The web server is located in St. Petersburg, Russia.

FBI have been informed promptly.

I will write on my Facebook page about it, as well.
