On a popular internet site like Facebook that has drawn 100 million users worldwide, it also draws hackers. Facebook users have experienced an increase of Spam emails, hijacked accounts, and deactivated accounts. Back in late July, attacks were linked to Koobface, an internet worm that targeted Facebook and MySpace. Koobface sends malicious codes in forms of messages such as "You look funny in this new video" and "You look just awesome in this new movie" leads straight to the virus, so it's best to DON'T CLICK THE MESSAGE. When you're on a social networking site, pay close attention to executables downloaded to Windows machines, keep your machine fully patched and run updated anti-malware software.

Spam e-mails spread Storm Worm malicious software to the recipient once the user clicks on a link, the malware software is downloaded to the Internet connected device and causes it to become infected and become part of the Storm Worm botnet. Botnet is a network of compromised machines under the authority of a single user. They plan to facilitate criminal activity and spreading malware to other machines on the internet. Social engineering lures to plant malware by using these two methods of using videos and fake Flash Player downloads. A file called code setup.exe is downloaded to the victim's machine.

Everyone should consider the following: (1) Do not click on unsolicited spam email. (2) Be cautious of individuals who represent themselves as officials soliciting personal information via e-mail. (3) Be cautious of emails that contain pictures in attached files, as many of the files may contain a virus. Only open attachments from known senders. (4) Do not provide personal information to anyone who solicits information. Also beware on the social network sites that include messages and comments such as 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.
