There’s a warning going out for Facebook users. A virus that can drain your bank account is reportedly picking up steam on the social networking site.

The so-called “Trojan Horse program” has already infected millions of computers in the United States.

Facebook says it actively scans for such viruses.

Some ways to protect yourself include making sure your anti-virus products are up-to-date and think twice before clicking on random links, even if they’re sent from friends.
