Facebook virus spreads further. The Facebook virus is typically spread through an email or a wall post from one your Facebook friends. Viruses such as Koobface hack into one of your friend’s Facebook accounts and may send you the following messages: “You’ve been caught on a hidden camera,” or “You just look awesome in this new video.”
How to avoid it ? DON’T CLICK THE MESSAGE! Even if it is from your friend or colleague. Messages such as “You look funny in this new video” and “You look just awesome in this new movie” leads straight to the virus. When you’re on a social networking site, pay close attention to executables downloaded to Windows machines, keep your machine fully patched and run updated anti-malware software.
