ZEUS BANKING TROJAN: Computer virus found on Facebook steals bank details and money from accounts when users click on links

A computer virus that steals bank details and empties money from accounts has been found on Facebook by security experts.

Trend Micro discovered the malicious links were being posted by fake Facebook profiles on popular brand pages, such as the U.S. National Football League.

The links are believed to be controlled by the Russian Business Network - an online criminal gang accused of stealing internet users' identities and private information.
