Beware Koobface! ::: facebook virus gone wild

Ryan Setliff

Information Services has recently been made aware of a new worm, called Koobface, that is being spread through Facebook. The worm spreads by sending notes to a user’s friends from an infected computer. The note directs users to a website where they are asked to download a program that claims to be an update to Adobe’s Flash player. If the user downloads this update, their computer will become infected. Please use caution when downloading any content from websites.
