Beware of Virus in Your Facebook or Other Social Networking Sites

Written By David D'Angelo on Saturday, March 7, 2009 | 3/07/2009

Now viruses threaten not only through your email or through your downloaded programs but through social networking sites as well. During the last week for example Facebook, one of the most popular social networking sites had received five threats. One of the most dangerous is the Koobface. Worms and threats like Koobface poses as legal applications or even videos and if clicked or downloaded they can steal your username, password and even other important data. That's not all it can even turn your computer into a zombie.

Internet and computer users had been very aware of email attachment virus that hackers and virus creators seem to find a new way to lure their target and that is through the very popular world of social networking.

So if you are into social networking here are some of my suggestions:

1. Be vigilant and examine each application and link carefully.
2. Do not click an application or video which has a suspicious or very eliciting title. Some examples would be "hot new video of...", "rare video...".
3. Ask your friend first before you download or click his video if it is really owned by him.
4. Update your anti-virus software.
5. Check out latest virus reports and threats.

Well for now that's what I can suggest. For the latest NEWS ON SOCIAL NETWORKING VIRUS CHECK THIS ARTICLE FROM YAHOO.
