Are you one of those Facebook users who click on any link posted by their friends? If you are, Trojan.Fbook might make you its next victim. This clandestine Trojan corrupts Facebook accounts to post links routing to corrupted websites, and, if you click a link of this kind, it is very likely that your operating system will be infected with Trojan.Fbook. Unfortunately, this dangerous infection is very silent, and most users do not learn about its existence until a more notable security breach occurs. Of course, there are some telltale signs that might help you realize that you need to delete Trojan.Fbook from your operating system. Our research team has analyzed this infection to provide you with information that will help you identify and remove it from your operating system in no time.
According to our researchers, the malicious Trojan.Fbook is spread using corrupted Timeline posts that tag other people. This method is quite new, but it definitely is more malicious, as multiple accounts are threatened at the same time. If a corrupted link is posted on your timeline, the targets are your own friends, but if the post tags other people, and you do not delete it timely, the corrupted link might be exposed to friends of these people as well. So, how does this work? The scam started with a web exploit, and now it uses malicious scripts. If Trojan.Fbook enters your computer, it will use your Facebook ID and a cross-site request forgery token (fb_dtsg) to create a post that tags your own friends. The link attached to this post will route your friends to a website suggesting to install a completely bogus update for your Adobe Flash Player. If you do, servant.exe will be executed. This is the file that you need to delete if you want to remove Trojan.Fbook from your operating system. If you do not, it is most likely that, sooner or later, you will encounter the following message.
