There appears to be a new Facebook virus out there.

I’ve received e-mails from Facebook claiming that I have been tagged in a photo album.  The albums have been titled “Who Views Your Profile” and “Profile Stalkers”.  The links are to install a Facebook app, which presumably propagates itself by sending similar messages.

Some quick searching shows that it may be a new version of the “Koobface” virus that first sprouted in December 2008.  Don’t click on the links, don’t install the Facebook app, and don’t download any files from it.
