As this forum is primarily intended to relate TO Facebook it seems prudent to bring to users attention some current issues relating to infections haunting Facebook.
This link demonstrates some current issues with infections from that site .


http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&sa=X&oi=spell&resnum=0&ct=result&cd=1&q=Facebook+infected&spell=1

Please be careful when visiting the site and be aware of these issues; this is also one reason why many places of work ( mine included) have banned and disabled access to the site Rolling Eyes

As I locate more up- to -date info I will add it to this thread study

A bit of an update; I have just noticed a thread on another forum ( which I will not link to out of courtesy to the other forum ) where the user states they had gone to the

''Do you think...." app

they say they were 'just looking around' . On the bottom, there was a link, but they did not realize it was a link. It said "Continue" on it, so they clicked on it. It opened another window and it was one of those "Crush Letter Websites." they clicked on it >>>>> and got infected

please be careful No study

Thanks for the advice...

One should always be careful whenever adding 3rd party apps. You should tell that person to report the app to facebook.


And as always if anyone finds, or suspects, that their comp is infected please do not hesitate to post here and we will do our best to help you.

An unexpected 'update' on this issue

I note on another site the info from a topic discussing a virus on Facebook
Quote :
She spends a lot of time playing games on facebook and with some kind of helper callled, mk inovations.

but she kept having a pop up for an anti virus 2009 and she said she didnt click on it. She closed her brower out and it installed anyway.

One might ask how well one protects ones computer and how sensibly one navigates ON Facebook study

We hope this information is useful for you Idea
Needless to say, how many thousands ( maybe millions) of people access and use Facebook and put links etc on there study
You can have as much protection as you wish on your computer but, unless you use appropriate judgement and common-sense while using your computer , you may well get infected Mad



If you have any concerns that you may be infected , please do start a new topic thread in the Computer Help Section

Some more information to consider


Quote :
unfortunately installed a koobface infected file to my computer. .... I then ran 3 McAfee virus scans and they came up clean. I thought everything was okay and good to go. It wasn't. I couldn't access my Facebook account and the lovely pop-ups that come with Koobface continued. I then did some research and installed the latest version of Avast! and ran a full computer scan. I deleted all the infected files it came up with. I tried to access my Facebook account and still couldnt, along with the pop-ups continuing.
