    Virus attacking thru Facebook

    WATCH OUT!
    Recently a virus got into my system thru Facebook. It corrupts random system32 drivers and files, corrupts windows system files and deletes logins to outside accounts. See Windows 8 Forum System32. Nasty little bugger. Gets thru Norton Facebook Shield. Great article on matousec.com on plague in security drivers. Please read it, good stuff.

    Many people don't secure their Facebook profile -- they let anyone and everyone look at everything, regardless of whether or not they are a FB friend.

    Also, many people seem to play every game and run every app that is on FB.

    I keep my FB profile secured. I log in as "https", not "http". And I don't play any games or run any apps.

    Also, I don't access FB from anywhere but from my home PC, eliminating additional entry points.
