Facebook App Links to Malware



McAfee Labs learned today that a malicious Java applet was being linked through a Facebook application.

Users don’t have to install the Facebook app on their profiles to be be exposed to this threat. On browsing to a specific Facebook application page displayed in an Eastern European language, the page connects to a malicious site that hosts a signed Java applet that claims to be “Sun_Microsystems_Java_Security_Update_6″ and is published by “Sun Java MicroSystems.”
