    Facebook Hit by Hardcore Porn Attack

    Thousands of Facebook users have been flooded with explicit images of pornography and extreme violence in a coordinated attack.

    Make one wonder who's next and could we be in line for such attack ?

    Facebook Hit By Massive Spam Attack (GRAPHIC IMAGE)

    A massive spam attack is wreaking havoc on Facebook users' News Feeds.
    ZDNET has covered the spamming for the last couple days and reports that the attack has flooded some feeds with graphic photographs, apparently distributed via hijacked accounts.
    One Facebook user contacted The Huffington Post and reported that a friend's account had inexplicably posted a disturbing image of an injured dog. "I know [my friend] would never publish something like this on his own," the user wrote.

    Although a Facebook rep was not immediately available for comment, the company has already confirmed the attack with a number of blogs. For example, Mashable writes that Facebook has acknowledged a "coordinated spam attack" that tricked users into copying and pasting "malicious jacascript in their browser URL."

    During this spam attack users were tricked into pasting and executing malicious javascript in their browser URL bar causing them to unknowingly share this offensive content. Our engineers have been working diligently on this self-XSS vulnerability in the browser. We’ve built enforcement mechanisms to quickly shut down the malicious Pages and accounts that attempt to exploit it. We have also been putting those affected through educational checkpoints so they know how to protect themselves. We’ve put in place backend measures to reduce the rate of these attacks and will continue to iterate on our defenses to find new ways to protect people.

    Have anyone had any problem with there facebook account ????
