How Do I Know If I Have A Facebook Virus?
Are you a fan of social networks? You might have various social network accounts. Facebook, Twitter and Google plus are some famous social networks. Social networks can bring us lot of advantages. But in the other hand they cause lot of cultural and security troubles.
Social networks help you to connect with your friends and families. You can make lots of friends over the internet. But it’s better if you avoid unknown friends when you are on a social website. How can you confirm that the certain profile isn’t fake? If it’s a fake profile then you may be a target of that person. Numbers of cyber-crimes are increasing these days and social networks are considered as the main reason for this. But this can be avoided if the account holders keep themselves safe by taking proper precautions.
If you are a Facebook user you should be careful. Facebook is the largest social network till now. So spammers mostly target Facebook users. You would have got several messages to your inbox from unknown people. These links also would have appeared in your chat box while you are chatting and displayed on your walls and Facebook homepages. Please don’t click them even if you are tempted too.
Most of these links are scams. To identify these scams just use a simple tactic. Don’t believe anything which loos too good to see. Recently there’s a scam on Facebook which promises 100,000 iPhones to the first 100.000 users who attend the event. Is Apple going to deliver 100,000 FREE iPhones? Doesn’t it sound too good? This may be a spam or even a virus!
If you inbox receives a message with tempting descriptions such as “I’ve spotted you” or “Hey, I have this hilarious video of you dancing. Your face is so red. You should check it out” then it may be a “Koobface” virus.
If you notice anything unusual such as links or messages in facebook don’t click them. If it’s from a good friend then call them and confirm the identity. You are the person who’s responsible for your own security. If you have an antivirus installed do regular antivirus scans. Enable your computer’s Firewall. And use the “Zone alarm” software if you are connected to a network.
