My Facebook friend sends a link about “request to remove your timeline.” After I clicked on it, a virus hit my computer. The PC is now so slow. Internet is redirecting to other web sites and all my searches are hijacked. Also, there is a text that shows up frequently that tells “Hacked by Mangu.”
I asked my friend about this and she said that the link didn’t come from her. She also reveals that I sent her the same link but she refuse to open it since there is no request submitted to remove the timeline on her account.
Now, I am somehow certain that “request to remove your timeline” is a Facebook worm. Probably, “Hacked by Mangu” text is author’s way to be popular on the web. So my advice, do not click on any links that appears to be suspicious. I know that many Facebook users wanted to remove their timeline and use the site in an old-fashioned way, which is why virus makers are using this opportunity to hack innocent victim’s PC.
To end this post, please help me remove the virus. I did scan the computer with my antivirus but it didn’t go away. What are other things I should perform to remove Hacked by Mangu on my PC?
