IT security specialist Finjan has warned users to be wary of an application targeting people on Facebook.
The malware copies a couple files to C:\Windows, deletes itself and creates a few Registry keys. F-Secure has detected the malware as Trojan:W32/Agent.MDN.
With millions of people connected on Facebook, and the fact that the site allows people to share images, video pictures and applications, users are increasingly being targeted by hackers attempting to exploit social networking to spread malware. URL filtering software, which contains whitelists of sites users are allowed to visit or blacklists rogue sites, can stop users inadvertently going tom a site that infects their PCs.
