Distracting Beach Babes on Facebook

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, June 01, 2010

That seems to have gotten everyone’s attention.

Distracting Beach Babes is the name of the latest Facebook app/virus. Anyone can write and submit a Facebook app. Facebook does not check apps before they're put up on the site. By the time Facebook realizes that an app is infected, it's too late and thousands of users are infected. Stick with the mainstream apps like Mafia Wars, Farmville, etc. if you must use any apps at all. Don't be the Guinea Pig testing out the cool new apps as that is where a lot of people find problems.

While we are on the subject of Facebook, be careful with links posted on peoples walls as many of those are posted by viruses and will lead you to infected websites. Most importantly, always make sure your antivirus and anti-spyware protection are up to date.
