I just started receiving messages from my friends on Facebook, and they all seem to be pretty much the same format.
I'm guessing this is a new worm, or at least an old one that's found a new way of getting around.
I was wondering if there's any known info about it.
I'm not sure if there's any serious danger regarding these links, and I ran one of them through http://linkscanner.explabs.com and got this:
Congratulations! LinkScanner Online did not find any exploits.
Here are a few examples of messages I've received:
Conggratulations! You are on TV!
CCongratulations! You are on hiddeen cammera!
Congrattulations! You are on news!!
They may not be that dangerous, but I'm 100% sure these weren't intentionally sent by my friends.
Yes, make sure you have both spy ware and virus protection software install on your computer. Don't click on any questionable links or ads. And only add people to your friend list that you know personally.
