Facebook Worm Spreads With a Lurid Lure Facebook was hit with a worm that infected users' profiles and then redirected them to pornography sites. Jeremy Kirk, IDG News Service Some Facebook users have been infected with a worm after clicking on an image of a scantily clad woman, which then redirects the victims to a pornography site, according to security researchers. Facebook Worm Spreads With a Lurid Lure - Business Center - PC World Business Center I got this info from a friends email: Seems I still have the virus/worm infecting my e.mail account. If you recieve any emails supposedly from me with the title 'Hi, how are you?', DO NOT OPEN. This is how the virus is spreading around. It works by hi-jacking your e.mail address/account & sending numerous adverts for various unsavoury items. It would seem that it obtains its initial contact details from Facebook, so any of you with a Facebook account, beware of this also.
