Facebook is no stranger to phishing scams and today another one is making its way around Facebook. The scam gets users to fill in their email address and password and then posts 25 wall messages on the walls of the user’s friends. What makes this version of the scam unique is that if the user deletes the wall posts, this system is apparently smart enough to post additional wall posts.
The message being posted on users’ walls is:
Hi hi this you?. http://videos.facebook.shjjiwe.com
Typically Facebook has blocked the link before we post about it however this one still works. Facebook has been aggressively fighting against phishing scams for the past year as the frequency of scams have increased as traffic to the site increases. This is yet another one of the standard phishing scams. As soon as a user clicks the link they are sent to a page which looks like the Facebook login page.
The bottom line is don’t click on the link! If curiosity forces you to click the link, don’t enter your email address and password as your account will immediately be used to spam your friends’ walls.
