    If you get a message in your facebook inbox claiming to be from someone on your friend list and containing a pic/video of you don't open it. Delete it, Its a virus.
    I have had 2 of these messages already and many of my FB friends have been infected with a virus after opening the link in the message.

    Yes because its in the form of a link. It will infect your PC if you click on the link. Your antivirus should tell you if there's a threat.
    Hubby was looking on a car sales website and managed to infect my laptop with 11 different viruses :eek: and that was a commercial site!!! Luckily my antivirus picked up the threat straight away and cleared them.
