Facebook Checking If Ramnit Worm Has Stolen 45,000 Logins [bbc.co.uk]
|A computer worm has stolen 45,000 login credentials from Facebook, security experts have warned. |
The data is believed to have been taken largely from Facebook accounts in the UK and France, according to security firm Seculert.
The culprit is a well-known piece of malware - dubbed Ramnit - which has been around since April 2010 and has previously stolen banking details.
Facebook told the BBC that it was looking into the issue.

|People can protect themselves by never clicking on strange links and reporting any suspicious activity they encounter |
Not sure what's the point, "links" have many forms they don't even need to click something.
