Facebook worm spreads through photo album chat messages
Category : General 10 Jan 2011 12:14 PM | Industry News
A new worm that spreads using a photo album chat message lure began proliferating across Facebook over the weekend.
The link in his Facebook chat from a friend pointed to an app.facebook.com/CENSORED link. Typically when you go to a Facebook app page it prompts you to add the application and grant it permission to post on your behalf or read your profile data. The scary part about this one is that it immediately prompts you to download a "FacebookPhotos#####.exe" file with no prompting or clicking required
The screen reads "Photo has been moved. This photo has been moved to other location. To view this photo click View Photo." If your computer has not already downloaded the malware, the "View Photo" button will download the virus for you.
