Facebook automatic like/repost spam.

ARGH... This is the third time it has happened now to me, and to anyone else - WATCH OUT!

Basically, one of my friends posted this article...


Despite the slightly gruesome nature, I was really interested in what it was so I clicked on it and it took me to the following page:




Now, the first thing I did was click play. The screen flashed which was a little weird and the video started. Everything was good... However, I could swear that the video is fake/a set up and not genuine though (thankfully!).

Anyway, I went back to Facebook to write that and then I noticed I was writing it on my own entry! It had posted a link (the same as my friend's one) on my wall.

I immediately deleted it and after I took a look at the site again, I noticed it wasn't You Tube, it was "Fou Tube" and a fake domain of "http://prank-turns-bad.info/".

It looks like the way it is achieved is simply by a bunch of Facebook Like buttons on an insivible/underlayed DIV...



I really hope Facebook do something as this is really annoying and I see this as a real growing trend at the moment.


(FYI to anyone who may be able to do anything - the link from the like post is http://apps.facebook.com/hgtfsindt/ and the actual domain/where it forwards to is http://prank-turns-bad.info/ )

  1. Numerous candidates look for somewhat additional than is really required, yet this is of little favorable position with regards to reimbursing the advance. In customary advance reimbursement plans, this can mean many dollars in additional enthusiasm being paid over the credit term. https://www.usacheckcashingstore.com/san-diego
