Million’s of Facebook users are in danger zone.
Koopface is a new computer virus spread through Facebook message system. It will send the message from the infected person’s profile to his friends, the subject line is like “you look just awesome in this new movie” it will open into another website to watch the movie after clicking the website it shows a message to need an updated Adobe Flash Player. But the virus will download while updating Flash Player.
Infected systems have the possibilities of stolen Credit card numbers. “Only a very small
percentage of Facebook users have been affected, and we’re working quickly to update our security systems to minimize any further impact,” – Barry Schnitt, the Facebook spokesman in Palo Alto.
My thoughts: it is inevitable that a social network will be used to launch a new viral epidemic
