A Threat on Facebook

A virus has been propegating on Facebook.
A worm that infects a computer try to lure people in to unzipping a file that was sent through the messenger. But I knowing the person new it was not her sending the file.
But rather I had a gut feeling that her computer became an enslaved zombie.
She linked it to "woody" which deposited two files the worm and the worm dropper.

Malicious encoders are now encoding "tool bars that look innocent" but now contain worms,Trojan and viruses.

I for one have no need for " tool bars" or any "add ons."
The worm activates the Facebook messenger and then sends out a message with a zip file .
People thinking that is is a file.From a friend may unwittingly open it.

Update: KOIN 6 just ran a story with this virus or one similar to it on the day of this posting . KOIN 6 was telling people not to use there bank accounts? Pretty sad when the news media drops the ball.
