Technically this isn\'t exactly a virus or scam or information phishing scheme, it sure seems like Search engine hijacker. Flip, Flipora, Filporamail and Infoaxe are all the same company. The service they apparently offer is to track your web browsing habits and suggest ads and search results and other websites based on what sites you visit. It is likevoluntarily signing up to have spyware or malware on your computer. The worst thing about this "service" is that when you sign up you directly give them access to your email address book and they use that information to send all of your friends, family and co-workers junk mail inviting them to also use Flip, Flipora, Fliporamail and Infoaxe. go through this Windows techbook article and you can get rid of this malware from your facebook.

How to protect the security of my face book account?


  1. Never click suspicious links: It is possible that your friends could unwillingly send spam, viruses, or malware through Facebook if their accounts are infected. Do not click this material and do not run any ".exe" files on your computer without knowing what they are. Also, be sure to use the most current version of your browser as they contain important security warnings and protection features. Current versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer warn you if you have navigated to a suspected phishing site, and we recommend that you upgrade your browser to the most current version. You can also find more information about phishing and how to avoid it athttp://www.antiphishing.org/consumer_recs.html andhttp://onguardonline.gov/phishing.html.

    Phishing is an online attempt to trick a user by pretending to be an official login page or an official email from an organization that you would have an account with, such as a bank or an email provider, in order to obtain a user’s login and account information. In the case of a phishing login page, the login page may look identical to the login page you would normally go to, but the website does not belong to the organization you have an account with (the URL web address of the website should reflect this). In the case of a phishing email, the email may look like an email you would get from the organization you have an account with and get emails from, but the link in the email that it directs you to takes you to the above phishing login page, rather than a legitimate login page for that organization.

    To prevent your account information from being obtained in a phishing scheme, only log in to legitimate pages of the websites you have an account with. For example, "www.facebook.example.com" is not a legitimate Facebook page on the "www.facebook.com" domain, but "www.facebook.com/example" is a legitimate Facebook page because it has the "facebook.com" domain. When in doubt, you can always just type in "facebook.com" into your browser to return to the legitimate Facebook site.

  2. Have a unique, strong password: From the Account Settings page, be sure to use a different password than you use for other sites or services, made up of a complex string of numbers, letters, and punctuation marks that is at least six characters in length. Do not use words found in the dictionary.

  3. Run anti-virus software: If your computer has been infected with a virus or with malware, you will need to run anti-virus software to remove harmful programs and keep your information secure.

My facebook got hit with a virus now i nao can not access it


Hi,

Your computer may have a virus but not facebook. The virus on your computer may have accessed your facebook account and changed the password so you can't access it. Most malware will disrupt if not completely disable your internet browsing ability.

If your facebook password was changed you will need to go through the "forgot password" link on the main facebook login page to change it. But, be careful, as your email password may have been compromised as well. If this is the case you will need to change your email password that you have associated with facebook.

Addtionaly, you can contact Facebook Support for help in resolving this issue. You can get to the help pages by going to "Help" on the main facebook login page.

I wrote a tech article on how to remove viruses from a computer. You can read it by clicking here.

Regards,

Hold'em Message Login Failed (#0001). Please email poker_customerservice@zynga.com if this issue persists. regards, Jose Sergio e-mail : justforfun.feelfree@gmail.com


It's a Facebook Virus attack. Somebody is trying to hack your FB Poker Hold' Em account. Here's how you fix it: Try Changing your email address linked to your Facebook account. Go to Facebook, then to account, then to account settings change email to a new email address. Facebook will then send you a confirmation email to your new email address inbox, follow link to confirm. Then go back to Facebook and go back to account, account settings and change the email to the new email address ...don't forget to remove the old (hacked) email address at this point.
Hope it this works and help you.
