    Exclamation ALERT !!! Facebook's new worm turns your friends into enemies
    This particular worm on Facebook is highly insidious:

    link: Facebook's new worm turns your friends into enemies | The Open Road - The Business and Politics of Open Source by Matt Asay - CNET News.com



    The worm spreads when a compromised user's account is used to send message to others with a title such as "LOL. You've been catched on hidden cam, yo:" and a link to a random URL. The linked website is a YouTube-like page that shows a video player along with what looks like a standard browser message to update your Flash installation. Clicking on the button begins a malware installation of a file called "codecsetup.exe."...
