Fan Check Virus Snopes

Last week I posted about the Facebook Fan Check virus and how it could possibly be just a hoax. Now it is becoming quite clear that it is really just a hoax, something manufactured by people who live for the Lulz. Have you encountered anyone who really got his PC infected with this virus? So far I haven't read any report about a real victim of this virus. But of course we should always be cautious and refrain from using Facebook Fan Check application for now. I am not a Fan check user so the chance of getting my machine infected is somewhat remote.
