Cyber criminals have released a new version of a notorious malware virus that is now infecting Facebook links and scans personal computer files to steal private information, according to FoxNewsLatino.com.

The virus, known as the Zeus Banking Trojan, has made its way onto Facebook profiles and is a newer version of the notorious Zeus or Zbot info-stealing viruses.

The virus, which traditionally targets Microsoft Windows-based computers, has infected links posted by fake Facebook profiles to brand pages. When you click on the link the virus infects your computer.
