New Malware Targets Facebook Usersí Passwords and Money

Just something to be aware of.

A new malware attack is targeting Facebook usersí passwords and money via the Facebook Messenger app.
The virus, named FacexWorm, is a modified version of a previously identified virus, Fox News reports
The virus uses Facebook messenger to send links to users, these links lead users to a fake YouTube page which then attempts to install a fake Chrome browser extension. This extension then attempts to steal users passwords and other personal data, any cryptocurrencies stored on the userís computer and even attempts to utilize the userís computer for cryptocurrency mining. The virus will also hijack users accounts and send YouTube links to other people on their contacts list in an attempt to spread the virus.
