Beware of New Video Malware on Social networking Sites like FACEBOOK (Eg. Bin Laden)

New fake videos has been posted on internet for infecting computers, reported on fake codecs being delivered on sites promising bin Laden death videos, these videos are promoted on social networks and internet search engines.
By clicking on the link a file named XvidSetup.exe will be downloaded and wait to be executed directly on victim machine this executable file is actually a popular adware that is called hotbar. Only 19 of 41 AV identified the malware. 
While navigating internet even if we have antivirus with the latest signatures we risk that our computers gets infected, some antivirus do not integrate their security solution in the browser , that’s why we should be very careful while searching for some news or videos , for example YouTube do not control all videos posted as it requires time for malware verification.
