Facebook and McAfee want to protect you from malware

In the past year, there was an alarmingly large number of Facebook-related scams, viruses, phishing attempts and malware attacks. And though most of these haven't happened due to Facebook's error, it's still very much their problem.

Today, Facebook and McAfee announced a partnership and a program to help Facebook users protect their computers from malware.

If you're expecting something revolutionary, though, you'll be disappointed. It's essentially a discount: to get it, visit the the Protect Your PC tab on the McAfee Page on Facebook. After you become a fan of McAfee, you can download a six-month subscription to McAfee security software for free, and you'll get a discount on the regular price once those six months are over. However, to enroll with the program (which is only available in selected countries including the US, UK, Brazil, Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy and Spain), you will have to supply your credit card number; your card will be charged at the end of the 6-month period.
