    An article just came out about a virus on Facebook that can turn one's Microsoft laptop/desktop into a bit coin miner called "Digmine". It seems to be in the Google Chrome browser that is downloaded. I would expect a fast fix by Google, but it doesn't say about removing the malware off of the windows machine. I suspect google chrome is popular due to its fast speed in an already speed challenged operating system/associated browser.
