Hello, I got you a surprise [WARNING - Facebook Virus]

Hello, I got you a surprise [WARNING - Facebook Virus]

This is a guest post by Sajitha who blogs at SajithaPramod. If you would like to write for CallingAllGeeks, check our adsense revenue sharing program.

Don’t trust your friend today, if he shares a blogspot.com link with a message in your Facebook inbox.  It is a Virus which auto-sending messages to all Facebook contacts from the infected Facebook profile.

“I got you a surprise, www.qwert**op.blogspot.com”.

DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK.  If you were to click on the link, it will lead you to a virus.

The blogspot link will redirect you to a online photo sharing website which shows a photo-album download link contains photo.exe virus.  I have collected some details about this Virus. Origin of this Facebook worm is still unknown. ( Fb Users from Greece and United Arab Emirates are early affected). It hasn’t caused a “global epidemic” as one would expect.  For example, not many people in the USA have heard about this yet and no one has written any tutorials on this issue. Also, most antivirus applications still have not been updated to stop the photo.exe virus file and every day more and more people get infected.  If you think your system is affected, check here for the virus removal and some precautions to stop spreading the Virus.  Do  you have any information or experience about this virus?  Do share with callingallgeeks.org readers and also check back to this place for more updates.

    Thanks for the update Sajitha. I got about six now and they all point to blogspot links… but I wouldn’t click through anyway – I am wary of ‘pretty girls’ I don’t know who say hello :)
    I posted the link to my FB account.
    Kind regards,

    I’m from Croatia and the that message and the virus has spread here very much. If you follow the link and download photo.exe, do not execute it, just delete it.

    I tried to download and execute this virus, if executed, it will disable all your applicati0ns. my AntiVirus is quite saying, “Your System is Secure”.. when infected, just boot into safemode and execute system restore to recover your system.. hope it helps.

  • biosite January 9, 2011, 10:48 pm

    if you did not execute the .exe file, then you’re safe, and you’re in a mac platform, and safe from microsoft windows virus.

    Hello I am from Poland and unfortunately I received this message.
    When I saw that my computer is downloading something I stopped it (when it was about 50%). Can anyone tell me, if my computer is safe?
    Sorry for my bad english, I hope you understand me :)
