How to avoid on being a victim of this malicious Facebook virus code:

1.Avoid clicking on unknown links. ex: external links that automatically downloads executable file or .exe extensions.

2.Don't allow apps that aks you an authorization in behalf of your account if you're not sure about the apps functionality.

3.Dont download video plugins if the links has a video teaser and ask you to download a plugin,it might be a virus.if you trust the origin of the video and you acknowledge that your laptop or pc does not have that plugin installed yet then proceed.

4.Avoid Windows computers if possible.
