The Latest Facebook Malware is a Phishing Scam

I am not a big fan of passing on those dire warnings about some “new” virus that in actuality has been around for years.  But this particular warning was reported on Alltop from Mashable, two sites I trust, and has only been circulating since Friday, May 28, 2010.  By now we’re all pretty skeptical of these types of scams, but apparently this one is looking unusually credible.

If you receive a post on your Facebook wall about the Most Hilarious Video Ever, do not install the player or provide your login details.  Here you can find the details from Websense Security Labs, generously posted to YouTube.
