TECH: Facebook Fights Violent and Pornographic SPAM

In Tech by Deezy0 Comments

No doubt you have seen the posts on your Facebook feed inviting you to click videos to see hardcore porn, celebrities like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj in precarious positions, extremely violent scenes or other offensive images or videos.

These links in question were not posted by your friends and chances are, your friends don’t even know these posts are being attributed to them.  Sounds like spam to me.

Facebook is currently investigating the cause of this latest spam attack, but fingers are pointing at hacker group Anonymous, the high profile collective that has been threatening to shut down the social networking site all year.  The latest threat promised to attack FB back on November 5th.Experts with computer forensics degrees should initiate a preliminary investigation on this
group.

Come to think of it, that’s about when I started seeing the posts….Hmmmmmm
