Hey, that’s not sexy at all

The latest scam on Facebook entices users to download what “is without a doubt the sexiest video ever.” This sexy encounter, however, will leave your computer with a dangerous virus.

Here’s the deal: when you accept this request, you are instructed to download a video application that will allow you to view the content. If you start the download, however, you actually get a Koobface virus that infects your computer and replicates itself by posting the sexy message on your wall.

The best way to protect yourself from this and similar posts (at least until someone develops a computer condom) is to contact friends who post such material and ask them if it’s legit. A lot of times they won’t even know what you’re talking about because they have no idea that the virus has compromised the Facebook account.

What constitutes suspicious material? Anything that promises unbelievable deals, sex, drugs, rock n roll, and anything that seems out of character for your buddy. If your conservative Christian friends starts posting links to porn, then either he’s been hacked or he’s starting to question his beliefs in a very public forum.

Oh, and the worst thing about the virus: you don’t even get to see the sexy video!
