Beware Facebook Video Scam/Attack

A Facebook phishing attack is on the loose this weekend — the third widespread attack on the site in the past three weeks.

The attack attempts to steal your Facebook login credentials, install malware on your computer, and even get your home address.

The attack is spread via a “hilarious video” posted to Facebook walls, reports WebSense — when clicked, a form appears requesting your Facebook login.

The attack then returns you to Facebook, installs an app called “Media Player HD,” and asks you to download the “FLV player” — doing so installs malware on your machine.
