Facebook worm spreads faster than wild fire

Unread postby Sludge3000 » May 21st, 2010, 10:51 am

Shifty sorts have created a new worm which spread rapidly on Facebook on Friday.

The malware, for now at least, does nothing more malicious than posting a message on an infected user's Facebook wall that point to a site called fbhole.com. Nonetheless, the speed of its spread on the social networking site has net security experts worried.

Blogpost @ F-Secure

Current Status:
Mikko Hypponen, from f-secure, contacted the company who shared an IP address with the domain dishing out the exploit. Within seconds both domains had been taken down and when they reappeared no maicious content was being served.
