Ramnit Worm Goes Social, Steals 45,000 Facebook Passwords
Have you changed your Facebook password lately? Perhaps you should do it again. Cybercriminals have taught an old worm some new tricks, pointed it towards the world's largest social network, and slapped it on the backside. It didn't take long for this particular variant of Ramnit to rummage through Facebook and steal over 45,000 usernames and passwords around the globe.

I don't use any facebook games or add-ins, etc. at all because of these security problems, and I try to be extra careful when clicking on web links. Good post Brink! I had just read this.
Take extra precautions and change all your passwords so that they aren't the same for different websites, especially your bank password. Good advice, that.
