Did you know there’s a virus on Facebook that can drain your bank account?!?!?! The New York Times’ Bits Blogs details how a 6-year-old virus called Zeus is all over Facebook right now. Here’s how to avoid it.

After the wrong link is clicked, the virus stays in the background on your computer waiting for you to access your bank account. It then starts swiping usernames and passwords so hackers can access it. A security firm called Trend Micro has found Zeus-laden links with increasingly frequency on Facebook, including on one football fan pages.

1. Avoid Windows computers if possible.

2. Don’t click on unknown links.

3. Make sure your bank has 2-step verification.

 

It’s all sort of common sense, but it’s SO EASY to accidentally click the wrong link and get taken. Just be extra vigilant, and good luck!
