Facebook Fan Check Application Virus



Just as last week, the facebook fan check application virus rumor is making the rounds again. And also just as last week people searching for information on the facebook fan check virus are running into some of the top search results hosting malware. There were several attack sites up last week when I saw this search in heavy duty hot trend mode and it likely is the same this week.

A word of caution – if you visit a web page that promptly pops up a full screen drawing of my computer or the like and claims to be running a scan on your computer it is probably faked.

Your computer usage will be MUCH happier the next few days if you immediately close out of any page that claims to popup a security check of your computer and claims to start scanning lots of files finding all sorts of problems.

The next step for many of these scareware vendors is to ask you to download and then their program finds many problems that they claim to be able to fix if you pay them a subscription fee. Please don’t fall for these scam artists.

You will have more headaches trying to remove their scareware from your pc than anything else. It’s likely that the facebook fan check application virus is a hoax as I haven’t yet seen any credible information that the app in question is a virus.

Unfortunately some of these programs install their malware on versions of Internet Explorer that are not up to date with security updates just by visiting the page. Game Over you now have a rogue security application that you will be cursing for the next couple days as you try to rid yourself of it. Be VERY cautious out there.
