Facebook Expands User Malware Scanning

Facebook announced a new partnership to help its users stay secure and malware-free. It’s all part of a continued effort from the social networking giant to do its part to keep the Internet safe.

The new partnership is with security vendor ESET and will now help Facebook and its users to find and detect potential malware running on user PCs. The way the malware scanning will work is if a user accesses a Facebook service and Facebook detects some form of suspicious behavior, the user will get a message with the offer to run an anti-malware scan.
