Beware the Facebook worm!

Want 2 C Something Hot? Well look for it somewhere other than FaceBook.

A new worm has started spreading on FaceBook showing a suggestive image prompting people to "Click da'button, baby!", well don't.

Click da'button

The image and link might appear as a post on the a friend's wall, and when clicked on, it launches an XSRF (Cross Site Request Forgery) attack, which posts the same image and link on your own wall, further spreading the worm.

As a general rule, it is safe to just avoid any suggestive images, if you want that kind of stuff, you know where to find it, and it's not on FaceBook.
