45K Facebook Login Details Stolen & Also More Than 800K Machines Were Infected By Ramnit Worm

Stories of Facebook accounts getting hacked is not attall uncommon. But this time a worm named Ramnit is responsible for stealing more than 45000 facebook login details. Actually worm that was originally designed to compromise bank systems has been repurposed and is now stealing Facebook login credentials. 
Security company Seculert has been actively keeping track of the worm Ramnit, which was originally discovered in April 2010. Microsoft, meanwhile, has explained that the worm is "a family of multi-component malware that infects Windows executable files, Microsoft Office files and HTML files. Win32/Ramnit spreads to removable drives, steals sensitive information such as saved FTP credentials and browser cookies. The malware may also open a backdoor to await instructions from a remote attacker."
Basically, Ramnit is capable of bypassing two-factor authentication systems, which means it's been able to gain remote access to financial institutions. Seculert has discovered that approximately 800,000 machines were infected with Ramnit between September and December. On top of that, a variant of the worm has stolen the login information for over 45,000 Facebook accounts.
