Facebook and Myspace Worm & Viruses

Web worms squirm through Facebook, MySpace

People at Kaspersky Lab have intercepted two new worms squirming through MySpace and Facebook, using social engineering lures to plant malware on Windows systems.

The worms propagate via the comments features on the two popular social networks, using video lures and fake Flash Player downloads to trick end users into installing malicious executables.

Some of the messages and comments posted to the social network sites include:

* Paris Hilton Tosses Dwarf On The Street
* Examiners Caught Downloading Grades From The Internet
* Hello; You must see it!!! LOL. My friend catched you on hidden cam
* Is it really celebrity? Funny Moments and many others.

Please refer here for full details.
