Brad Pitt is alive and well, and if you click on a story claiming otherwise … it could expose your phone, computer or other device to hackers.
Facebook is warning users not to click on what appears to be a FOX News report about Brad’s death. If you do fall for it, and enter the requested info … the bad guys can get your passwords and control of your account.
The malware is evil genius — the hackers clearly preying on the public’s interest in all things Brad and Angelina Jolie.
If you’ve already fallen for it (pretty embarrassing, eh?) … FB suggests changing your password immediately and running its malware software scanner.
