    Default Fraud.Facebook.Messanger

    Why only Spybot detected this Trojan? I removed this parasite using Spybot. However, and in couple days I got it again.

    So far so good. But I did not get answer on my major question. Why only Spybot detected Fraud.Facebook.Messenger Trojan? I searched Google and figured out that other people had the same problem and the same question. Does it mean that Spybot mistreated some legitimate software? I do not believe that other antivirus software missed this problem. No one of them even mentioned that problem.

    Hello,

    Fraud.Facebook.Messenger is a fake messenger for the social network Facebook.
    It installs itself to the computer pretending to be a messenger for Facebook.
    It compromises the system security and is likely to steal Facebook login information.
