CSO: Facebook has announced that it will partner with Websense to improve security on the social networking site. "When a Facebook user clicks on a link it will be checked against the Websense database," Websense officials explained. "If Websense determines the link is malicious, the user will see a page that offers the choice to continue at their own risk, return to the previous screen, or get more information on why it was flagged as suspicious."

According to BitDefender, malware originating from Facebook links is the most common attack vector for mobile devices.
