Facebook working with Kaspersky, F-Secure, ESET and Trend Micro to detect and clean the malware from its user’s machine.
Facebook announced today that its working with Kaspersky and other security firms like ESET, F-Secure and Trend Micro to detect and remove malware from Facebook users’ computers.
In these cases, we present a cleanup tool that runs in the background while you continue using Facebook, and you get a notification when the scan is done to show you what it found.
The program uses a combination of signals to help find infections and get the malware off of your computer for good, even if the malware isn’t actively spreading spam or harmful links.
Fraudster may also use Facebook to like weird things and promote questionable goods and services on your behalf.
