    A new mass-mailing virus targeting Facebook users

    Facebook users BEWARE!!!


    If you receive a message in your Facebook in-box announcing, "You look funny in this new video" or something similar to the screenshot below, and then invite you to click on a provided link... DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK!!!

    Once on the video site, a message says an update of Adobe Flash player is needed before the video can be displayed (screenshot below). The viewer is prompted to open a file called flash_player.exe. If you run the ".exe" file, you end up with an infected computer, which then takes you to contaminated sites when you try to use search engines from Google, Yahoo, MSN and Live.com, according to McAfee.
