Popular Facebook App is Hacked

Mass referrals were coming from a Facebook application called "City Fire Department," a game where multiple players respond to emergency calls. The application had been modified to deliver an iFrame, which is a way to bring content from one website into another.
The iFrame serves up code that tries to exploit vulnerabilities in a PC's software. If it finds one -- a process that happens nearly instantly -- it then downloads a fake antivirus program called Antivirus Pro 2010.
