Well once again there is a new virus being spread though facebook, its called "Koob-face." Basically when it hits your computer it looks like a link a friend sent you or a video a friend sent you. It will ask you to download and woo la it has you. So bottom line, if a link asks you to download anything... don't.

"Just one person getting an infection on a social networking site actually opens the door to thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, or millions getting infected," says Jeff Debrosse of ESET Computer Security.

Once you get this virus it will send messages doing the same thing to ALL of your friends. As you can imagine it goes viral from there.
