Users tricked by video scam of 'distracting beach babes'.

Security experts have called on Facebook to set up an early warning system on its network to notify users of any threats as and when they occur, after yet another malware attack hit the site over the weekend.

The attack is the second in successive weeks to use a 'sexy video' to lure the recipient into clicking on a fake FLV Player upgrade message which then downloads adware onto the PC.

Both files arrive as a thumbnail video in messages posted to users' walls. Last week's included the message: 'This is without doubt the sexiest video ever!: P :P :P.', while the new scam refers to 'distracting beach babes'.
