Seems the hackers/spammers are getting more social these days. Not only have they been moving on up to Facebook and Twitter to get you to click on their email links to infest your computer, they are also using such schemes as propaganda to say that your computer is out of date on patches that need to be updated. Here is an example of one such email below.
