I've Been Koobfaced

Don't let it happen to you. When that message comes from Facebook that says someone saw you in some video, perhaps dancing...if you open it, you're in for a world of trouble. Big ol Trojan--loaded up with malware.

Do a Koobface Search. Nighty night.

Yeah - sorry!

I have a friend on facebook from highschool who's constantly sending me applications. Being a slightly enlightened luddite, I don't usually join. Now I'll be even less likely to.

Anytime anything on the web tells you that you need to update your media player, you should be wary. When something on Facebook tells you to update, you may get lulled by a false sense of security.

Thanks for the warning... So, far, I've not opened those... In fact, I'm not opening any of these other things: Flowers, Good Mornings, Teddy Bears... Not because of fear of viruses, but they are all too cutesy high school-ish or something... Other than that, I'm enjoying keeping an eye on old friends...
