Distracting Beach Babes on Facebook Virus

By Tim Martin

 

Thousands of Facebook users are reporting that they have been hit by a malware attack posing as a video showing off the "assets" of an attractive female.

The message reads:

"(name), this is hilarious! lol :P :P :P Distracting Beach Babes [HQ] Length: 5:32"

When you click on this video, it will install malware onto your computer as well as post it on your "wall" on Facebook to lure other members into clicking it.

Don`t feel bad if you click it, it appears one of your Facebook friends posted it.

If you have already clicked on the video, you should change your Facebook password, make sure your antivirus is up to date, and run an anti malwares program. I recommend Malwarebytes. You can download it directly by clicking here.
