A few people pointed out this malware email doing the rounds. "Download a FREE 30-day Trial of MCAfee VirusScan Plus and Be Automaticaly Entered to Win.," reads the email.

He said he took the action to highlight privacy issues. Facebook responded by saying the details were already public information.

This guy has more CPUs than you. Yes he does.
