I think someone from Twitter has created a facebook app called fan check. It carries a virus and has now made virtually all of facebook unuseable. Peoples "news feeds" are delayed by 24 hours and can only be temporarily restored by logging out. Temporarily as I said.

Wonder how they'll get round this. Its spreading like wildfire.:eek:

Maybe if folks didnt load every crap app that they get sent things like this wouldnt happen.

However - DONT go googling for fansite virus - the hits direct you to spurious websites set up with malware alarms on them to make you think you are infected in the hope you will buy their useless "antivirus product" - which is probably what will infect your computer.
