Hackers already entered in Facebook hoax spreading

Posted by TechGeek on September 29, 2011

Surely, as Facebook is getting more and more popular, scammers and  attackers will target Facebook users by different ways. We are seeing lot of people posting status messages about security warning on Facebook. The message says,

ATTENTION EVERYONE:THE HACKERS ALREADY ENTERED IN FACEBOOK&THEY ARE PUTTING PORNOGRAPHIC VIDEOS TO YOUR NAME IN THE WALLS OR PROFILES … OF YOUR FRIENDS WITHOUT YOU KNOWING IT. . YOU DON´T SEE IT, BUT OTHER PEOPLE CAN SEE IT, AS IF THESE WERE A PUBLICATION THAT YOU MADE! SO IF YOU RECEIVE SOMETHING FROM ME, IT’S NOT MINE!!! icon sad Hackers already entered in Facebook hoax spreading copy this in your wall;) it is for the security of YOUR OWN IMAGE :))”.

The message looks fake one and it may have circulated by someone who is behind this just to create the panic. After reading such status messages, people will re-post it on their profile assuming it is a real one.

Till now, we have not observed any pornographic videos on anyone’s Facebook profile. We will continue to monitor those and will post if we find it. Such messages are always created many times for fun also. So don’t believe in such messages and do not spread it by posting on your wall post.

To be on safe side, create a strong password and do some home work on Facebook privacy and security settings. You can find security and privacy related articles on our website also. So don’t panic.

In the mean time, you can tighten your Facebook security with the help of security settings provided by Facebook team.  To read more,
