Just a warning for all those who have a Facebook.
If you get a message, even from someone on your friends list, that says..
"Hey friend, here is a pic of you caught on hidden camera .LOL."
With a link to click..
It will download a host of trojan viruses.

Thanks for the information.

The only social network worth visiting is twitter!

Dude I never click those things. Though sometimes I get unbelievable urges to...

I just got a virus a couple weeks ago. Took me about an hour and a half to fix it. Pretty frustrating.

Why do people even make those? Especially the ones with pop-ups? Do the creators actually think we'll be like "Oh cool! An advertisement. I'll go check it out!" :shk:

Not only did I not know this, but this is the first I've heard of it.

I appreciate the heads up and information.

If you DID click it, your computer is now infected. Depends on what type of antivirus you have though.
Everyone on your friends list though, will have been sent the same message.
