According watchlist Vaksincom, during the week of 8-9 September 2012 recorded Facebot changed at least twice a virus changes the hosting site. If the initial variant virus files included file sharing sites, then change the next variant of the virus file storage location to, magnetic photo frame vendor sites which provide facility to upload photos. Not satisfied exploit to spread itself, then Facebot again exploit site adult magazines Spain www.devora ** and put the file the virus at the site. Besides changing the location "hosting" the virus file, Facebot also smart enough to use a random name and file size are different so it is difficult to be blocked by file name, hash md5 or file size. Currently, the only effective way is to rely on antivirus protection you have (specifically Windows OS users) if you are indeed the "itch" and recklessly clicking the file was uploaded your Facebook contacts. But actually, if the receiver does not run the file sent by Facebot file, the virus will not be able to carry out the action and halt its spread.

Challenging Facebook

Not a Facebook name that is not to intervene to help users. According watchlist Vaksincom, Facebook administrators working hard to block the file names are spread by Facebot every time there are reports of users of Facebook. (See figure 2)

If this virus apps in action on Facebook, we already know the ending, victory will be in the hands of administrators Facebook for apps that spread the virus will live on Boom Shakalaka (aka the delete / disabled by the administrator Facebook). But this time a different story, not the source of virus infection on Facebook apps on the computer but there are in fact beyond the reach victim adminstrator Facebook. So every time a link is blocked by Facebook, then in a short time will come another random link clicked by the victim. (See figure 3)

Required by this virus only proper social engineering that victims who receive this link will say "Wow ... Fantastic Baby "and click on the link provided. Apparently this trick has been successfully executed using the site Devora ** n as the host of this file. For fans of adult content, likely to be interested if you get any file from adult sites such as Playboy, Penthouse and Devora ** n. But unfortunately not Wow, Fantastic Baby obtained by the victim runs the file that was sent but that he would get the "Bad Boy and Bad Girl" on his computer because once implemented it will infect the victim computer, delete himself so hard in the detection and began to spread itself through FB Chat to all your Facebook contacts via Facebook Chat.
