Malware on Facebook

11 08 2008

As reported by Sophos,

The new worm is supposedly spreading through messages sent through Facebook encouraging recipients to click on a URL to view video/image content.

When run, this downloader downloads another Trojan from a remote server, which has been added as Troj/Agent-HJX. It also downloads and displays an innocent image from a popular download site, and saves it to the Windows folder as joke.gif.

The usual rules apply here. Be careful what you click on and what you download. Make sure it is actually coming from the source is appears to be (and keep your antivirus software up to date).
