Yesterday I was browsing facebook and came upon a link. I clicked on it and it brought me upon a different site. Usually I would be more cautious, but I guess this time my mind was at ease. When it bought me upon a different site, it asked me to click the like button and share it. By sharing, it posted the same link as a post on my facebook wall. After sharing it brought me to what it was promoting, a funny letter/story. I've heard of facebook malware before, and became worried. I use my credit card on this computer often so I am worried. The computer also had this lag stop, where I would either click on firefox or the startup button and it would freeze. I am then unable to unfreeze it. This has happened twice, but the computer seems to be working fine now. I also searched the context of the post in facebook, and it appears there were 3 items. All the same, but three different links. They also had many "likes" but I am not sure if they were real or fake.
