Chasing the dream.


I get those occasionally ever since I apparently pissed off some crazy person on the internet. Every so often they try to guess my password and I get those notifications, if they are legit from Facebook there should be a link that says something like "this wasn't me, report this" and the URL will very clearly link to Facebook. When clicked the link gives you a "thanks for the report!" spiel but won't ask for logins or passwords. I think you can see the IP address they are coming from as well.

But spammers have also been sending out fake versions of the same message to try to convince people to click and input their logins. Check the URL closely to be sure it has https://www.facebook.com and not farcebutt.ru or something, and you can always just chose to ignore them since it's a notification of an unsuccessful login anyway. I think you can also see any active login sessions in Facebook itself to be sure no one got in.

Just wait until Microsoft starts pulling the monthly subscription poo poo for the OS itself. They already moved Office to a monthly/ cloud hosted deal and are also actively pushing patches that break the poo poo out of older installs of office.
