I have windows xp. I received an email this morning from facebook. It was a message notification. Not awake yet, I didn't notice the format was different than other such notices. It had a subject but instead of the body of message, it had a link. The same message and link are in my facebook inbox. Person is legit, an old friend. But link took me to a new browser window saying that my computer was in danger, red trojan flashes on what looked to be 'my computer' page, etc. After several cancel attemtpts, I succumbed and downloaded the file. But I didn't open/run it. I'm finishing up an Avira scan and it's detected nothing.
Can someone scan/view this link safely and tell me what it is, what I need to do? I won't include link until I'm given the go ahead. Thinking it might give the bad guys access to my fb account.
Much thanks in advance...cj
