A new scam is sweeping the social networking site.

CNN: If you see a message that reads "I just got the Dislike button, so now I can dislike all of your dumb posts lol!!" in your Facebook news feed, don't click it. That's the warning posted by Graham Cluley of security vendor Sophos.

The fake dislike button is just the latest incarnation of a malicious program that spreads itself by silently updating your status with the same message you clicked, hoping to infect all of your friends.
