SecureMac shouldn't be taken as a reliable source for information  
about malware.  (The like to lie alot.)

OSX/Koobface.A, aka Boonana, is intended to be a worm, but this bit  
of malware doesn't work correctly, and even if you are infected  
apparently there will be no serious damage.  You can turn off Java  
(not JavaScript, which is different) if you are afraid you might get  
this malware.
