Did you know that Facebook has over 500 MILLION active users and that over 50% of those log in on any given day? It has become a great place to connect with friends, find out what’s happening, playing a game or to take part in discussions. It’s also become one of the easiest places to get infected with a Facebook Trojan virus or other Facebook related malware. As it turns out, these types of nasty little bugs are abundant and a lot of them can be quite serious. The Koobface worm is probably the best known Facebook malware but compared to Facebook Trojan viruses, this worm is sweet and harmless.
Facebook viruses use a lot of different techniques to infect your computer and even experts in the field can never be confident that you’ll never be caught by one of the new techniques that just seem to keep coming. There are some simple measures that can help, but if you aren’t diligent about following them, it’s almost guaranteed that sooner or later you will pick one up.
