Facebook virus ?

Was browsing an acquaintance's Facebook page a few days ago  - let's
assume his name is Michael Jones.

Today I discovered a file in my downloads called:

microsoft_michael_install_jones.zip, which contains an exe of the same
name.

Avast says it is win32:malware.gen. Anyone come across this before?

I don't know Michael Jones, so no.

Seriously though, the malware name given doesn't help much. Did you  
click on any links on his facebook page?

    No, it's phishing spyware. Avoid it.

    As to the executable you downloaded, send it here:

Interesting - 11 of the 22 scans reported a problem.  Most prolific
was 'symmi.3505 '
