The new Facebook craze “Be Like Bill” could reportedly serve up malware or steal your personal info. Concerns have been raised that scammers could trick Facebook users into installing fake and malicious apps that claim they generate the popular “Be Like Bill” memes. Jonathan Sander, VP of product strategy at Lieberman Software have the following comments on it.

“Anything you click on anywhere on the Internet can potentially be a delivery mechanism for malware. When you walk down a street of shops, you wouldn’t walk into one without at least glancing at its facade, its window, and other clues to see if it’s the kind of shop you want to be in. Too often people click on links without thought; stepping into Internet shops without so much as a glance of where they’re going. Bad guys depend on the lack of care to get malware delivered.”[/su_note]
