Not CoooL – Latest Facebook Scam

Word to the wise, beware of anyone sending you a “CoooL Video” via Facebook today.  Clicking on it could send you into heaps of malware and we all don’t need one more thing to worry about these days.

If you accidentally click on it, here are some smart tips from Mashable:

“If you receive one of these Facebook mails, simply delete it – one of your friends is infected but not you. If you find, however, that your account is sending the mails:

1. As a precaution, go to your browser settings and clear your cookies.

2. Change your Facebook password

3. Make sure your antivirus software is up to date and run a full system scan”

Facebook, although easy to use, is quite complicated and it only takes a click or two to send you off of the social networking site and into the bowels of the viral unCoooL.  One blue screen of death or pinwheel later and even the Geek Bar might not be able to save you.  Precaution people.
