ESET has released the Version 6 update for Nod32 and Smart Security. With this update comes the addition of the new Social Media Scanner.
Facebook is offering a service that allows users to send messages to other users, which will be delivered at the stroke of midnight. The only problem is, anyone can view and even delete other users' messages.
Keep an eye out for bogus Gift Card scams through the holiday season. This social engineering trick says you'll get $1,000, but all they're trying to do is install their malicious Facebook app...
Careful, folks, there's a new Worm that is posing as a "Facebook Photo Album" executable. A .zip file is being emailed and if you install the program within, you're likely to infect your system.
Facebook has changed the buttons/options you see when an app would like access to your Facebook profile. In the past, you would be greeted with an "Allow" or "Don't Allow" option. Now you are no longer presented with the clear options and in fact now, there's only one button - "Play Game".
Ok, we used to go through the Who/What/Where/When/Why when it came to this sort of Facebook post. I don't think this one requires such an explanation. I just can't believe how much of this, well, crap is still floating around on Facebook.
Did you know Facebook is tracking you everywhere you go on the Web? Even after you log out of Facebook, they're still tracking your footsteps and that data is tied to your Facebook User ID.
There is a *new threat floating around Facebook. It's another one of those "See Who's Viewing Your Profile" scams. I'm surprised so many people are dying to see who's viewing their profile.
Antivirus alone is no longer enough though. Threats come in all shapes and sizes and “virus” no longer covers the gamut of threats out there. Once a system is compromised, it can be very difficult to regain control over. The most effective tool in regaining control over a compromised system, in our experience, is Malwarebytes’ Anti-Malware Pro.
Facebook has added new privacy options that we recommend enabling. The first is a feature called Profile Review. This lets users preview posts other users tag them in. Since rogue Facebook applications can tag users in posts, this is a great way to prevent bogus posts from spreading.
