Info on Defensio
« on: March 12, 2010, 01:03:09 PM »
This is really more of an advertisement for Defensio, a Facebook security app from Websense, but I'll post it here for those who may be interested:

We have detected a malicious campaign that is quickly spreading on Facebook. The malware has very low anti-virus coverage and can be found on prominent Facebook pages such as ones belonging Justin Timberlake (2.1 million fans) and a few others. If you use Facebook and are worried about this, we have a Facebook app that solves this problem (read on). If you are a customer, yes - we stop this at the gateway in real-time.

Yes, this is a good application to allow on FB.  It will help protect you from malicious content delivered by way of links.  I was already using it for my Blog and did not know they started protecting FB pages.  Great find!   :)1
