There’s a Facebook scam roaming around today. You might have seen it. Mashable reported on it.
This is a prime example of a malicious entity using an interesting headline, a provocative picture for the purposes of evil. They also used a bogus captcha module which were really like and share buttons in disguise. While this generated over 700 likes in a short amount of time it also clogged news feeds (which I’m sure led to all three pages being shut down). This campaign capitalized on curiosity.
The motivation behind these “Clickjackings” could range from information looting, malware transmission and extreme annoyance.
So please be careful where you click. Remember if it looks like SPAM, it is SPAM.—PEDRO CASTRO
