Facebook Virus

A social networking virus that’s been around for months is getting slicker.

The latest version of the “Koobface” worm sends an alleged message from a Facebook friend asking you to click on a link to a video. If you click, you see a page with a photo of your friend and are asked to download a player to watch the video. Do it, and you’ve got the virus — and someone else now has access to your computer.

The page that the link leads to. on the face of it is a very familiar looking spoofed version of YouTube, complete with bogus comments from “viewers”.
