Facebook Worm: Koobface Worm In New Form Infects Facebook, MySpace

Facebook and MySpace user beware: the Koobface virus is back in a new form. Huliq reports:

A new strain of Koobface worm, a type of web application virus, is resurfacing in Facebook and Myspace. Security experts warn the users of the popular online social networks to be watchful and use caution when on the networks. The "Koobface" Facebook worm tricks users and hijacks accounts.

This virus seems similar to the one that was affecting Gchat users not long. That worm also used false messages from friends to hijack your confidential information.
