Beware of "OMG Horrible Accident Must Watch" Facebook Malicious Application

If the Facebook post "OMG Horrible accident must watch...Watch Your Video Here" has been posted on your Facebook Wall or Timeline, please do not click on it or the link it displays. This is a malicious Facebook application with the name "YouTube". This application has nothing to do with the video sharing website YouTube.com. The application wants to trick you into giving it access to your Facebook account, so that it can tag a picture of itself (see below) to all your Facebook friends.

Please continue below.

The malicious Facebook application lures its victims in, by posting a graphic photo of an accident, claiming that you can watch the video. There is no video.
