Zeus Trojan Resurfaces on Facebook

Zeus is back… with a vengeance.
 
Stating in February, those who monitor these things started to see an uptick in the virus's activity.
 
The risk with Zeus is that it is a  program that, once in a computer, steals login info from the user when they access financial or other types of security conscious sites.
 
The word is that Zeus is spreading like wild via Facebook, so be cautious in your activity there.
 
Obviously this type of program can be serious… really serious if you are infected.  The best way to protect yourself is to keep you antivirus up to date, scan your hard drive daily for infections, and do not open emails or click on links in emails that are questionable.
