FACEBOOK VIRUS!
« on: April 11, 2010, 09:10:02 am »
Alright so I work at a computer repair store and over the past week I think we've had like 50,000 people (exaggeration) come in saying their computer has a virus.

How they all got it? Facebook.

There is a virus going around Facebook that uses a members account to send a message with a YouTube link to a couple friends... When the friend clicks the YouTube link their computer is immediately infected.

If you send videos via Facebook a lot we recommend using a code word. So if the code word is not in the message do not click it.

If you don't get videos very often and receive a link from someone, message the person back to make sure that THEY sent the video and it isn't a virus.

Be careful ;)

Thanks Seldom.
Sites like Facebook will always be a target won't they.

Always use protection.  :angel:

You should always watch what site you type your login information to. There are "fake Facebook"'s out there. People have made webpages that look exactly like Facebook, except when you type in your login information they steal it. After that it redirects to the real Facebook and you never know the difference

Watch your web browsing.
