Becareful on Facebook

So recently, I was on Facebook and I noticed some of my friends liking “SEE WHO VIEWED YOUR FACEBOOK PROFILE!! on Facebook Profile Spy.” Curious, I clicked on the link assuming it would take me to some Facebook App, but instead it opened a new web browser window to a site named fbstalkers.info, which I immediately closed. From that I knew my computer might have been infected by malware. Before I could attempt to run a virus or spyware scan, Microsoft Security Essentials displayed a pop-up stating it found a Trojan virus, Exploit:Win32/Pdfjsc.GG. I removed it and ran a full scan again to ensure all components of the malware were removed.

According to Facebook, there’s no way to see who has visited your profile. They also prevented others from providing this functionality. They are working hard to block and remove websites, Pages, and applications that claim to do this. If you see one, don’t be fooled. Besides, fbstalkers.info other malware sites that are baiting Facebook users are fbseeker.info, fbprofileviewers.info, and fbprofiledata.info. If your friends share or like these links, do not click on them and warn your friends that they are fake. They should also run a security scan on their computer.

If you clicked on a link that led you to fbstalkers.info and you are on a Windows PC, I highly suggest you run a virus and spyware scan. If you only have an antivirus program, make sure you also install an antispyware program, because not all antivirus programs can detect Trojans, you can learn more here.
