Virus/Trojan on TFS?
I apologize if this has been discussed before but I have recently noticed a weird Facebook 'like' button above the threads (see screen-cap).
When I clicked on it by accident my Firefox browser warned me that it was a trying to access my computer and it opened a download window.

Imo, those are serious red flags pointing to a Trojan.
Am I mistaken here? Is this an approved website application or is there a breach of security on TFS?

^Yes those like buttons exist in every thread for a week or two or maybe more. For unknown reason. The only thing that happens when I click on the like button, is that, it opens me a window to facebook, is all.

^^ If you're using Firefox as a browser, and you wish to get rid of all this unwanted and boring advertising including facebook plugins, download Adblock Plus and your problem is solved forever!

We have noticed that facebook thing ... I don't think it's a virus ... just some sort of popup. We have reported it to tech support last week, just in case it was malicious... but they have not removed it ... so I suspect it's intentional for some reason.
