Facebook Users Targeted By Fake Virus AlertMike Sachoff
PandaLabs said today it has detected the massive spread of a fake virus alert that targets Facebook users.
The company said it is another attempt by cybercriminals to infect users with fake antivirus programs.
The fake warning is being distributed by email and users are forwarding it or publishing it on Facebook walls, further spreading the hoax.
The text of the fake warning reads:
ALERT >>>>> Has your facebook been running slow lately? Go to "Settings" and select "application settings", change the dropdown box to "added to profile". If you see one in there called "un named app" delete it Its an internal spybot. Pass it on. about a minute ago.i checked and it was on mine.
PandaLabs says there is no associated link, but if users search the Internet for more information, they will come across a number of malicious websites designed to download fake antiviruses.
The fake antivirus used in the virus alert is called LivePcCare.
