Facebook Has a Worm?

Is it true that I can get a worm, a virus or some kind of malware from using Facebook?
If this is in fact true, how come Facebook is allowing this? Shouldn't they be controlling the website's security so stuff like this never happen?

You don't have to worry if you take care of your information.
Facebook malware attacks to date have largely consisted of getting user credentials via phishing sites and then spreading spam and additional phishing attempts. Never trust shady applications that ask for your info.
Never type your password unless you're at Facebook, always look at the address bar in your browser.

Last year there was a worm in Facebook that aimed to install trojan software on a user's machine.
But in order to get infected you had to click some link.
