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.

The article near the end also reads:
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.
