  • Facebook users get porn shock

    Facebook Inc said that it is investigating a rash of unsolicited graphic images that hit some users' accounts this week. The images, internet links and videos depicting pornography and violence have hit some people's Facebook newsfeeds in recent days. "We experienced a coordinated spam attack that exploited a browser vulnerability," Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes said in a statement emailed to Reuters. "Our efforts have drastically limited the damage caused by this attack, and we are now in the process of investigating to identify those responsible."

    Facebook does not know yet who was behind the attack and a motive was not clear, Noyes added during an interview with Reuters.
    Facebook users were tricked into pasting and executing "malicious" javascript in their browser URL bar, which led to them unknowingly sharing the content, Noyes explained.
    Facebook engineers have been working to reduce this browser vulnerability, he added.
    Facebook and other "Web 2.0" sites are easy targets for such attacks because they pull in a lot of content from outside sources, according to Paul Ferguson, senior threat researcher at Trend Micro Inc.
    "It seems every other day there is some new Facebook 'threat,' but this is just the new reality of Web 2.0 and social networking," Ferguson said. "It is 'low-hanging fruit' for criminals."

        This really shocked me! I think its terrible that one could be innocently be using facebook unaware that they have been hacked :/ as a facebook user it makes me consider deleting the account as i only use it to talk to friends and family it worries me that such things can be done on the internet :O
        Abu Harayrah reported that Allah's Messenger SAW said, "Do you know what backbiting is?" The Companions replied, "Allaah and His Prophet alone know." He said, "It is mentioning about your brother what he dislikes." One of the Companions asked, "What if what I say about him is true?" He replied, "If what you say about him is true, you have backbitten, and if it isn't true you have slandered him." Backbiting is Haraam because it is an attack on a Muslim's honour. It exposes weaknesses which need not be exposed. it lowers him in the eyes of others. Backbiting is the most common sin which goes by without notice. Instead of slandering ones brother - pray for his weakness and guide him in that which he sees not.:up:
