Worm steals more than 45,000 Facebook logins


A nasty bit of malware making the rounds on Facebook has reportedly made off with the usernames and passwords of more than 45,000 users.

Most of those affected by the worm--called Ramnit--are from France and the United Kingdom, according to a bulletin issued by security researchers at Securlet. It is capable of infecting Windows executables, Microsoft Office, and HTML files, according to McAfee.

The only way you can get a worm or any virus on FB is if you click on the link in a post that is sending the worm/virus.  Its simple to avoid just DON'T CLICK on suspicious looking links, most of the time it is very obvious that the link is some kind of virus.

It amazes me on how many people fall for these.   You would think by now most would learn not to click on them.  violent1   Also I have noticed its the same people who get them all the time, one of them being my best friend/sis every time a worm is going around FB she ends up with it.  I tell her over and over DON'T CLICK IT.  She says she thought it might be a virus but was curious so clicked anyway.  DUH!!!!
