<< HOAX ALERT – Bon Jovi is not dead >>

A fast spreading hoax is currently circulating on Facebook. The Hoax claims that International Rock Star Jon Bon Jovi is dead at 49. The claim is confirmed as FALSE. If you happen to see the hoax show up in your news feed, it would be wise NOT to spread it.

>Warn Your Friends, Copy and Paste This Status!


>Subscribe to The BULLDOG Estate by Email

So there have been reports coming in that there is a “New” virus associated with the Barack Obama Clinton Scandal!

Your friends have been posting a message as follows…


Virus spreading like wildfire on Fb and My Space! It is a trojan worm called koobface. It will steal your info,invade your system and shut it down! DO NOT open the link Barack Obama Clinton Scandal! If Smart Girl 15 requests you as a friend, don’t accept it; it is a virus. If somebody on your ………list adds …her, you get the virus too! Please copy and paste to you wall.

Now Koobface IS a real virus, but it is an out dated virus which any up to date antivirus program should pick up. (You are running an AV program right?)
This is a typical copy, paste warning. Most of the time these things are harmless.
The thing here to remember is that adding someone to your friends list won’t invite a virus, but that if a user is sharing links to virus infected sites… This is another story.
A lot of the times these are spread by an ex who is seeking revenge to get people to un-friend a user. In this case Smart Girl 15.

How can you tell if these things are fake?
A simple check on google usually does the trick.
Snopes is also a great tool to verify the legitimacy of internet shared information.

I’ve also pointed out some false, out dated, or misleading information to users who share status updates like this by pointing out Snopes.
The disappointing ones are the Amber Alert messages, because the user thinks they are truly trying to help. But this leads to “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” scenario. Then any following real Amber Alerts are usually falling onto def ears. This has a more negative impact than a positive one when messages like this are spread.

On a closing note, please remember to do a quick followup on these types of things before blindingly doing the copy and paste thing.

Information is power, but false information is just another slap in the face.

I hope this was useful to you, and everyone esle you share it with.
Cheers

>Hoax Alert: VIRUS on FB using your pictures

VIRUS on FB using your pictures. It says you have been tagged in a picture, wants you to click on a link to see it, then hacks into your computer & all your accounts, including banking & other secure accounts. It destroys your computer. Once hacked into your computer, it sends …e-mails to your friends telling them they have been tagged in pictures & starts the process again PLEASE RE-POST 



This alarmist message which warns of a dangerous virus that uses fake notifications of being tagged in a photo is both partly true and false, though mostly false.

It is true that past koobface virus threats have used the method of claiming a Facebook user was tagged in a photo in an attempt to fool that user into clicking a link that would then request them to install malicious software. The Fake Sims 3 Application scam and Photo Comment Application scam both claimed a facebook user had been tagged in a photo to dupe them into installing dangerous Facebook applications. However both those threats were quickly shut down by Facebook and we are unaware of any serious threat re-using this particular tactic again. Additionally the assertion that the virus `hacks your computer and all of your accounts` is pseudo jargon designed to scare the reader. None of the genuine threats using this tactic destroys the victims computer either and this overly alarmist message is too vague, misleading and outdated to be of any use.

Facebook users should be aware when clicking links, and never install Facebook applications or other downloadable attachments after clicking on Facebook links. If you click a link that states you have been tagged in a photo, then you should be directed to that photo. If anything else happens, leave the page and close your browser.
