Attackers posting virus links on Facebook

KMOV - Be careful the next time you see a cute message forwarded to your Facebook page.

The message could be a new computer virus. Attackers are posting links on Facebook wall pages asking users to click on a Christmas video. The victim next sees a windows warning message, requiring them to solve a "captcha" puzzle. Until the user enters the given code, the computer freezes, and can't be rebooted.

If the user enters the code, the attacker has control, and will use the victim's Facebook account to send more tainted Christmas links.
