Malware on Facebook

A new malware attack has been roaming around Facebook lately which puts a link on the users newsfeed which claims to be the “Sexiest Video Ever” which indeed is not. Once you click on the program it will ask you for permission to access your wall and profiles, then it will tell you that you need to download an updated version of FLV Player which is actually a .exe file which contains Hotbar Adware. Hotbar Adware puts a toolbar in your internet browser which will drive you nuts by displaying ads that are determined by your browsing habits. If you do not allow the program to access your profile or wall then you will be safe.
