Facebook "Dislike" button really, really does not exist (as much as we would like it to)

Here's an example of what you might see /  Courtesy of online security firm Sophos.
Facebook does not have a "dislike" button. Really. A nasty scam has been tricking people with messages, like this one: "Facebook now has a dislike button! Click 'Enable Dislike Button' to turn on the new feature!" These messages  have been popping up all over Facebook in the last week and activate some nasty, malicious code if you follow the instructions. Online security firm Sophos sent out a warning ballon on Monday about this latest honey trap. We've all dreamed about this button, but hey, it's only a dream!
