Facebook Virus Warning from CiCS

Friday, December 5th, 2008

Please be careful if you use Facebook. We are receiving reports of a virus.

Several Facebook users have received a video message that appears to be from Facebook itself.

When clicked on, the message attempts to download a virus that will disable antivirus software and any desktop icons.

If you are on a managed machine (such as in student computing rooms) you are protected from such viruses but if you use an unmanaged PC or using your own laptop you may not be. Please do not click on a video message within Facebook.

If your computer has already been infected please telephone our helpdesk
on: 222 1111.

Thank you
