Christmas Warning

I usually don’t bother to pass these warnings on as most of them are hoaxes. However this one is from Mashable which I believe to be pretty reliable.

Oh, scammers, you know no shame. In an effort to exploit holiday cheer, a new malware attack poses as a Christmas greeting on Facebook, but actually installs the nasty Koobface worm on users’ computers.The worm spreads as infected users post the greetings to the walls of their friends, who then in turn get infected when they check out the supposed greeting.
