Over half a million infected Macs. A week later and the only sign of removal tools are coming from independent developers. At least Apple finally spoke up and admitted they have a malware problem.
The Biebs. The Biebs. We all love her. This latest social engineering attack comes by way of Justin Bieber and a "video that ends his career for good." I guess these sorts of links are irresistible too. It's the guys clicking this one :D
This one just popped-up in the Feed a few minutes ago. Its title is "Yeahh!! It happens on Live Television!" Ironically enough, it's women that are clicking on this post too, not men. :D
Shocker. The '0rgasm' post on Facebook leads to a virus (Trojan). Funny enough, it hasn't been men that have been clicking on the link in the feed. :)
[Warning] Another Facebook Scam -> "This Guy Took A Picture Of His Face Every Day For 8 Years."
I can't say this enough. If the picture or link is "so enticing" you simply HAVE to click it, chances are, it's a virus.
Mac or Windows, Antivirus or not, it doesn’t matter. Facebook is a Website and links that appear in the feed can lead you to fake Websites that attempt to collect sensitive information or install malware. There is no security software that can prevent you from being socially engineered.
Running McAfee? Think you're protected? You're not. Don't be fooled into installing "Antispywarebot" - it's a virus.
