Facebook virus

Just thought I'd post this because I know a lot of us use Facebook. There is a new virus called "Koobface". It uses social network's messaging system to infect PCs, then tries to gather sensitive information such as credit card numbers. They way it works is by sending notes to friends by the person's computer that's been infected.
The message includes subjects like "You look just awesome in this new movie" and below there is a link which asks you to download what it claims to be an update of Adobe Systems. Once it's downloaded your computer is infected without you even knowing, and takes you to infected sites when you try to use search engines from YAHOO, Google etc.
So just heads up. If you wanna learn more click here.
