Facebook Login Worm

Facebook users beware, the Ramnit worm is trying to steal your Facebook login.  So far at least 45,000 Facebook logins have been stolen.  Sure it’s only a drop in the bucket, but it’s enough to cause concern with users.

So what happens once these hackers have your Facebook login?  They blast out malicious links to your friends to try and spread the worm further.  Also, they might take advantage of the lazy who use the same password on their Facebook, email, Ebay, etc. accounts.   One way to prevent this is to not click on any suspicious links on Facebook and to also use different passwords for all of your accounts.
