Porn Hackers Attack Facebook, Users Beware

If you happen to be logging into your Facebook account today, especially from work or school we have a message for you, user beware! It turns out that a group of hacking pranksters have been sending malicious links to users which in turn has posted various pornographic images into their news feed.

How bad is the porn? One Twitter user tweeted:

“I saw a dead dog, Justin Bieber sucking a d***, and a naked grandma. Time to delete Facebook.”

The images are coming as users click on what appears to be valid links from their friends and other subscribers, most often telling their followers to check out a funny YouTube video or a funny picture from other sites. One example that Forbes found had the message:

“Wow, I can’t believe you did this in this video. I LOLed.”

Facebook was quick to respond to the spammy links and told ZDnet they are

“Aware of these reports” and “investigating the issue.”

While the hacking group Anonymous has been blamed for the attacks by some groups they have not yet come forward to claim responsibility although the supposed “humor” in the message sounds more like something LulzSec would attempt to accomplish.

Have you found unwanted pornographic images and videos in your Facebook feed or the feed of friends today? Remember to reset your Facebook password the moment you realize you have been hacked and always check your Facebook feed after you have clicked on links, even if they come from your most trusted friends.
