yes.. very hard to read.

I have seen someone receive malware from facebook. I have also seen malware that sends e-mails out as spam.

(this actually put our company of 2000 employees on a spam hosting "blacklist") :thumbsup:

i was hit with the W32.Koobface.A virus just a few hours ago, it comes as an email in your facebook and it gives you a link that looks like a youtube quick link dont click on it at all it will send the virus the file name is fio32.dll but i agree the ignorat fool who created it is brilant, but not that smart, facebook reps are in proccess of hunting down the user id and what not cause all viruses big or small are always back tracable....trust me i found that out the hard way hahahaha hope this helps, oh you will need to do a full scan and beef up some of you restrictions with your virus protection software to catch it as well

As with gaming sites, users visiting MySpace, YouTube, Facebook...are exposed to innocuous-looking banner ads containing code which can trigger pop-up ads and malicious Flash ads that install viruses, Trojans and spyware. Ads are a target for hackers because they offer a stealthy way to distribute malware to a wide range of Internet users. See How Malware Spreads - How did I get infected.
