Earlier this week we reported on a new type of Facebook scam making its way around the Web that masks itself as an email from Facebook but actually contains a virus as an attachment.

Today, Facebook has warned users of two different viruses that users should be aware of. The company writes “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.”

The company also advises users to visit its Security page for details on how to protect yourself and what do if you’ve been infected.
