Default Facebook Worm Feeds off Google

Facebook Worm Feeds off Google

Warn all your Facebook friends about this new worm making the rounds. It is the age old “download this codec” crap to watch a video blah, blah, blah, instead of a video all you get is a worm up the ol’ exploit hole.

For most Facebook users, it's common to receive a message from a friend urging them to visit a page containing a video. But one video currently making the rounds appears on a Google page and will not play unless a new codec is downloaded and installed. The link provided on the Google page is not a video link, say researchers at Fortinet, but a link to a Trojan horse hosted on yet another server.
