Facebook users need to be more careful; it’s under attack again from a virus known as “Ramnit”. It is a worm which is familiarized with the financial industry and is now targeting users of Facebook especially those from France and United Kingdom. Recent report reveals that near about 45 thousands of Facebook users accounts are under attack. So Facebook user need to be more careful as Worm is spread with the help of links posted on different pages or users pages via updates.

Although,  it’s not the first virus attack which users are facing on Facebook. Few months back one such virus was spread which hacked the users’ account and shared vulgar videos via updates on walls of other users on Facebook.

Ramnit was discovered by Microsoft Malware Protection Centre (MMPC) in April 2010 and from then it keeps on hacking data of users from various industries. In July 2011 Symantec estimated that Ramnit accounts for 17.3 percent of all new malevolent software bugs.

Ramnit had also helped hackers in leaking the ZeuS source-code in May 2011 as reported by Trusteer in August 2011. Also, it was discovered that near about 800,000 machines were infected with Ramnit between September to end of December 2011.

Interestingly, hackers are targeting those users who use same password for different web-based services like Facebook, Gmail, Outlook Web Access, Yahoo! mail, Rediff, Corporate SSL VPN etc. Major reason behind hacking users account is to get access of corporate networks.

Below video will provide clear idea about how to check and remove Ramnit Virus:-

Personally, I think users should pay more attention while they click on the links mentioned on pages as virus attack on Facebook is on peak. Virus attack on users’ accounts directly highlights the negligence of Facebook. Company needs to take some severe steps to help users in protecting their accounts from getting hacked.

Last but not the least; users be careful while you click on the link mentioned on pages of Facebook. Not every link will get you joy !
