New Facebook virus: If you click on the message, all your friends are ''infected''
A new virus is spreading like wildfire among Facebook users in Sweden, according to the Swedish technology website M3.

If your account is affected, the virus is passed on to all your Facebook friends, Swedish experts warn.

So you might want to be extra careful before clicking on "teasing" links in messages from Facebook friends in Sweden atm, as the virus will then quickly spread further.

The hackers behind the virus are sending out messages on behalf of those already on your friends list, and can include something as simple as a message that says "How embarrassing ... [followed by a link]" in the feed or Messenger chat from a profile infected with the virus.

If you click on the link, you will be redirected to a website that apparently looks exactly like Facebook's own, but where it looks like you have been logged out and where you are prompted to log in again to your profile.

If you follow the instructions, you give away your login password, and thus gives the hackers direct access to your real Facebook account which becomes infected.

And then you will be spreading the virus on to friends, with similar messages like the one that made you curious - and the snowball is rolling.
