Facebook is not just a place for friends, stalkers, dramas,
or what the cooler-than-you people call a place for losers. But it's also a heaven for virus.
The new Fb's chat box seems cool but it turns out to be a medium that send virus to friends.
Have you receive the weird message like "hi, how are you?" and then "you look funny in this video" or "you look so stupid in this pic", and there's a link attached? This link will take you to a fake YouTube site which will request you to upgrade/download the Adobe Flash Player. If you proceed, then you're actually downloading a worm which hijacks your PC.
It's called Koobface. Yeap it happened before, and now it's back on Fb, alive and well, waiting to cripple your computer. So beware. Don't be fooled. Fb is no longer a safe social network.
That's why I never turn on my chat availability anymore. I'd prefer private message or wall post. And Twitter. :p
