I shall spare those of you who don't wish to read about keeping your computer updated... the rest below the fold.

Facebook Trojan

Okay all you facebook users. Via Walt's posting on facebook there is a trojan flitting about out there...

Facebook Users Attacked by Trojan Virus

Once again - just like email - you must be careful of what you click.  *sigh*   If you aren't sure about something just don't click.  Even if you are sure - think twice.

This is currently hitting facebook via your inbox and/or email depending on how you have it set up.

Update Your Adobe Reader

Nearly everyone uses Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Reader.  So, have a look and see if you have the latest version.  From the Cert Advisory:

Systems Affected

     * Adobe Reader version 8.1.2 and earlier
     * Adobe Acrobat (Professional, 3D, and Standard) version 8.1.2 and earlier


Overview

   Adobe  has  released  Security  Bulletin APSB08-19 to address multiple
   vulnerabilities affecting Adobe Reader and Acrobat. The most severe of these
   vulnerabilities could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code.


What does this mean to you?  It means, look under your "help" menu on your Adobe Reader, check the version, go HERE to get the update if you need it.  (nearly everyone needs it)  So when you get a pdf file in your email or click on a web link pdf file, you won't let someone hijack your computer... at least not with this bug.
