Candid Camera Prank [HQ] Facebook Virus?

If you get a Facebook wall post from your known friend or anyone with a video link named Candid Camera Prank! [HQ] then just remove the wall as it is a virus. It will not play any video rather prompt you to download a file which on execution will infect your system and circulate this video to your friend list.

I didn't know it was a Facebook virus and I clicked the Candid Camera Prank! [HQ] so I'm warning everyone about it.

Does Facebook know this virus? Did it happen the same to you? Did you click the Candid Camera Prank! [HQ] link?

This is the worst scam I have ever faced on Facebook.

my computer crashed due to this very Facebook virus…

The Candid Camera prank![HQ] virus has been circulating everywhere. Actually this is not a video and it links to an application which will take you to download a file named vlcplayer.exe. Running this will post this message on your friends wall

Unfortunately if you are Already Infected from the Candid Camera prank! [HQ] Virus then do this steps:

1. Go to Your Applications in Facebook
2. Find and Remove app named “K-Multimedia” From the list.
3. Delete the file you downloaded from your system as well and scan your system with a good antivirus application.

I managed to get rid of the Candid Camera Prank [HQ] virus completely from Facebook and from my computer.

I also got this link on my facebook and on clicking it, it didn't play anything nor it asked to download anything..may be because i have Norton 360 installed which blocked it.

I ran it on my iPhone and it asked to install WinAmp..... I don't usually do stupid things like this, but thinking it was a joke from a good friend, I clicked on it..... going to reload the software, thank God it wasn't on my PC.... it doesn't look like it's done anything (yet!)

Linux
It's good I'm not on a Windows box, in fact I don't own any windows boxes any more. But I feel the pain of you guys who haven't made the switch to a safer system yet. It's probably going to cause a lot of trouble around the world.

My wife was complaining to me all morning because I clicked on the Candid Camera Prank while navigating with her account. She forgot to log out and I accidentally the whole Facebook profile.
I showed her the Candid Camera Prank picture, how was I not supposed to click that?

Don't click it
To install the virus. BUT....

The real video (seriously), is from:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUeMgZrLO8s

If you don't believe /trust me, you can google search that link. It should bring up the cached page so you can see I'm not fibbing. It's nothing fancy.
