Virus protection: Real or Rogue?

The newly launched Real vs. Rogue Facebook app from Microsoft features an interactive quiz to help you tell if a security warning is from your real antivirus software or from rogue security software.

This Real vs. Rogue Facebook app can help all of us think twice before we click anywhere near a security warning.
