Thousands of Facebook users are being suckered by a virus masquerading as a slideshow of beach babes, reports security software firm Sophos.
The malware comes from a post on user's walls that advertises a video of "Distracting Beach Babes," and includes a picture of a young woman in a bikini. And clicking on the video link takes you to a rogue Facebook application, warns the security firm, which will display a bogus message leading you to download adware to your computer.
Meanwhile, the application has just forwarded the video in your name to all of your Facebook pals.
